I recently became the Technical Lead at the company I work for, Primitive Social. We're a smaller software team, but growing somewhat quickly. The job description is a little fluid, as its a new role and I have some privilege to turn it into what it needs to be.
My question for you: What does it need to be
What are the most essential parts of being a tech lead? What do you wish your tech lead would do for you?
And what do you think are some of the most important technical standards you think need to be written? (There are no wrong answers, every answer has value, no matter how "obvious")
