Responsible Seniority

When it comes to the hierarchies of software teams, there seem to be some pervasive and toxic attitudes. What is it we should actually expect from our seniors and what are some of the entitled views that we could do without?

I'm a career web developer from Dunedin, New Zealand. I've worked in the software consulting, banking, finance and insurance sectors ahead of joining my current workplace, Intergen. I specialise in the Microsoft .Net web stack and can talk about your next website in-depth using the excellent Umbraco CMS.

Software and support is my passion. I'm focused on the people side of tech and love talking about teams, culture and leadership. I like solving problems in a clear, relatable and simply-explained way. I want people to find computers and software easier to work with and easier to understand. If I'm not doing tech stuff, I'll be playing my drums, enjoying the cricket or spending time with my kids.
