What I wish I knew when I became CTO  ↦

From David Mack, CTO and co-founder of SketchDeck:

  • You can accumulate responsibility faster than you can learn how to harness it.
  • I now appreciate that the infrastructure, frameworks, and languages you choose will stick with you for a really long time.
  • Only hire when you feel you’re completely desperate for the role.
  • Hire to keep up with growth, not to generate it.

I really appreciated David’s thoughts on hiring.
