Introduction, Slide 2
The development lead is the bridge between being a developer and being the solutions architect. When a developer wants to step up to the next level of the software development hierarchy, they may wish to become a development lead. Depending on the organization, this position might not necessarily have formal management responsibilities for the developers, but instead focus their time on helping their development team be successful.
Every development lead will need to know these questions, which will reveal the skills and technical knowledge of a candidate, their creativity in creating their own tools to solve problems, as well as their ability to train, support, and lead a development team. If you're thinking about becoming a development lead, check out the article, "Anatomy of a Software Development Role: Development Lead," for a comprehensive overview of what the job entails.
