How to Become an Engineering Manager

freiheit.com at Code.Talks 2018

Some people think, that Managers are not needed anymore. It is widely believed, that the future belongs to agile, self-organizing teams and emergent behavior. In a world without managers, these teams operate like some kind of swarm intelligence, that always finds the right solution, at the right time, and is constantly creating the highest value for the customer, right?

So why the hell would any sane software engineer ever consider becoming one of the grotesque characters we all know from the Dilbert comics?

But once you work with larger groups of humans you will discover, that there is always a need for really good management, no matter how agile you are. There is a big difference between modern engineering management, and the way most non-engineering organizations execute and experience management today. Instead of focusing on status and politics, modern engineering management emphasizes effectiveness, results, skills, and relationships.

This talk is about what it means to be an engineering manager and how you can become one yourself.

Stefan is a computer scientist and software engineer with over 35 years of hands-on experience. He runs a large engineering group of almost 120 software engineers at freiheit.com technologies, a company he founded 20 years ago. And he thought, too, that the company would never need any managers.

Even though machines are taking over more jobs that previously have been executed by humans, this development also bears a lot of opportunities for us, because we are still a valuable workforce. Nevertheless, the population declines and becomes increasingly older and many exciting jobs still remain that only someone made out of flesh and blood can do best. At the same time, the human workforce is decreasing. This is where intelligent machines can steer demographic changes towards our benefit. Claudia’s article explains why we should embrace the opportunities created by the Second Machine Age.

Claudia Dietze - columnist for the online magazine SAAL ZWEI - writes exclusively about topics that move her in her daily life as top executive. Today: Man muss kein Programmierer sein, um Software zu entwickeln.

Not so long ago, not many job positions were offered for non-engineers in the digital industry. This has changed immensely. More and more jobs are created, where even a university degree in archaeology, history, or philosophy will take you a long way in the digital industry. Here, it is more important to understand different things in context and to question them. The second machine age will not only wipe out jobs but it will bring forth many and entirely new jobs. Nevertheless - and this may be the bad news for people with an educational background in humanities - at the same time, it won’t hurt if one is good in mathematics …

Imagine the European Union builds its IT infrastructure based on free software. Imagine European member states trade information with the help of open standards and share their software. Imagine municipalities and city councils profit from decentralized and collaborative software based on free software licenses. Imagine Europeans are no longer forced to use proprietary software any longer.

That is the goal of the FSFE. The FSFE Summit is the general assembly that unites FSFE members and supporters from all over Europe.

As a long-term FSFE donor, freiheit.com is represented through its founder Stefan Richter. In his talk Free software is now the default choice for the digital transformation, Stefan speaks about free software as a standardized option within all major digitalization projects and Internet companies and offers basic decision guidelines for entrepreneurs, which he gathers from twenty years of personal experience.
