Are you a developer who is looking to get into management? Or are you a manager in your first 2 years on the job? Then you have found the right list. My goal is to become the best resource for making this transformation.

The hard truth is that management is not the same job as development. The good news is that it is learnable. If you can learn to be a good manager, your experience as a developer will give you a huge advantage.

I am building what I wish I had when I was first starting out. Luckily I wrote a lot of these articles while I was in the early days of making the jump to management. I hope it will be a mix of perspectives from someone who was going through the transformation to now as someone looking back.
