Quotes by Patrick Kua  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The Tech Lead brings value by enabling everyone on the team to contribute code as much as possible; by avoiding rewrites due to people working in different ways; by managing technical debt to make it easier to add code, and by promoting relationships between the development group and business colleagues to ensure the code addresses business goals and delivers true value. As a leader, you enable others to do their work; you harmonise and thereby maximise the efforts of the entire group, not just an individual.”
Patrick Kua, Talking with Tech Leads: From Novices to Practitioners

“The time you spend honing your development skills, such as seeing patterns in code, refactoring code to be easier to maintain or extend, and writing tests does little to prepare skills in resolving conflict, establishing a team culture, or communicating technology in ways that non-technical people can understand.”
Patrick Kua, Talking with Tech Leads: From Novices to Practitioners

“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few.” – Shunryu Suzuki Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind”
