"Herding Cats" is now "Leading Software People"

As of June 1, we've changed the name of this newsletter from "Herding Cats" to "Leading Software People." Nothing against cats, but it turns out the phrase gets attached to all sorts of non-relevant situations, so we decided to go with something that describes the content you'll find here a little more accurately.

We've also created an accompanying website where we'll be publishing new articles of our own, along with contributions from other veteran software team leads and managers.


You're reading Leading Software People, a curated newsletter for people who are managing software teams, brought to you by Status Hero. We hope you find it helpful!
