I will take you on a journey of the different career evolution opportunities that I had on my professional experience, be it on an Agency or with a client: developer, Lead Dev, Tech Lead, Scrum Master, Point of Contact, Team Leader, Developer Advocate, Core Team, Lead Chapter, Senior Staff Engineer... Behind all those titles (that I had in a official or non-official way), I could see an evolution on the company's organizations that are looking more and more add value to technical careers and develop a tech culture. Moreover, the definitions and expectations can vary from one company to another. One trend is clear: one path is oriented on technical expertise (Individual Contributor) and another is oriented on people management (Engineering Management), but... how to proceed if we want to do a little bit of both? I may have found the answer and I will explain to you on this talk!
