Today was a good day; you just got promoted as team-lead of your development team. The details weren't all that clear, but the boss told you: "You'll figure it out on the job."

You know there will be some extra responsibilities like taking the lead in job interviews, talking to potential customers, keeping the stack up to date... You don't want to let your team down, and there are a lot of eyes on you.

It might be best to avoid some pitfalls.

In this talk, we will take a look at how you can keep the team motivated and inspired, see if we can apply the same mindset to job interviews and dive into some do's and don't of talking to customers. You're going to do great, but a little guidance never hurt anyone.
