I spent 30 years coding full-time, then I switched to full-time management and leadership. Ask me anything.
Lorenzo Pasqualis Sep 8 '17
My name is Lorenzo Pasqualis. I started writing software in 1984. Over the years I used many languages, technologies, and tools. I have been in technical leadership positions since the early 2000s, and in full-time executive roles since the beginning of 2014.
Today I spend most of my time focused on the art of architecting scalable systems, organizing engineering efforts, hiring and training talent, managing people, leading engineering teams, and helping designing solutions in the EdTech industry. I am very close to the technology as an architect, but my principal concern is people. I am an active advocate for Women in Tech, a believer in servant leadership, and a lifetime learner.
I still code; mostly personal projects or to help my teams. Coding is a passion that will never die, and staying close to the technology makes me a better leader of technologists.
I am the author of a blog, CoderHood, dedicated to the human dimension of software engineering. In other words, it's about people and their life in the software industry.
I have been x-posting some of my articles here on dev.to. Dev.to is an amazing community that I like to support in whatever way I can ( Ben and Jess, you rock! Well done! ). If you have any questions that you think I can answer, ask away. I will respond as best as I can, and I might write a blog post to expand on the topic.
Ask me anything!
