Hi all - I am Andy Walters, a team lead for a computer-aided engineering software company near Pittsburgh, PA. I've been doing civil and mechanical engineering software for 17 years, much of the time writing C++ code but also being involved with process and organizational improvement.
I've bounced between the technical and management tracks a few times and finally decided that while I enjoy the coding, I [i]love[/i] the management challenges. In my current position I am managing six directs in five locations. As a result, I really value the podcasts that talk about virtual teams.
Many thanks to Mike & Mark for the fabulous content, to the forum posters for the great discussions, and to my good friend Joe for pointing me to the podcast.
I will be at the Chicago MT conference and am looking forward to meeting roughly 100 of you. :wink:
