Lead Developers are not always the best iOS devs in the teamOn November 15, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Caio: “Is the Lead iOS Developer the best iOS Developer in the team?” Well, often, but it doesn’t have to be. They can be a very good developer with very strong leadership skills… But not the best developer in the team, but the best leader in the team. A good Lead developer will want to surround themselves with better developers than them. So you need to be good, you don’t need to be the best. So as a Lead Developer you need to have confidence. So if there’s someone better than you in the team you learn from them. And if there are people not good as you then you teach them become better than you. Like in martial arts… A good black belt produces other black belts that are better than them. A bad black belt keeps people below their level… Because they are afraid and not confident. You want to prepare and produce leaders as well!
