These are the books I wish that I read upon accepting my first Engineering Manager position.
by Julie Zhuo, Design manager at Facebook
What a great book. Easy to read, practical, and inspirational. The Making of a Manager covers the basics of managing people from 1:1 meetings to interviewing and setting expectations.
by Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister
Peopleware is a classic and for good reason. This book helps new managers avoid common mistakes that occur within software teams, mistakes that I’ve seen plenty of new engineering managers make (including myself at one point!).
