Frustrated with balancing coding and managing?
You're a good programmer. You solve hard problems all the time. So why is it so hard to manage a team? Wouldn't it be nice if someone with experience guided you to become the leader you want to be? Marcus Blankenship has been through it. He was a programmer; now he manages multi-million dollar projects. And he has helped many others through the process. And he's into Clojure! Please support the Gazette by signing up for his mailing list. Signing up iss a no-brainer: it's free, honest (sometimes brutally so), practical advice to make you as good a manager as you are a programmer.
