So you want to be a Tech Lead? 10 things you need to do to succeed.

"Tech Lead" is an amorphous job title - is it all about the technology, or all about leadership? What should the balance really be?

And it can also be a complex and thankless role too - particularly if you find yourself becoming the go-to guy (or gal) for everyone from the intern to the product manager.

In this talk I'll cover (at least) 10 things that I think are essential to success in both areas, including how to address technical debt, herd your PMs and make sure your development team has a steady flow of work (and beer, pizza or other "motivationals").
