Things Developers “Love” Hearing From Non-Technical managers

June 21, 2018

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to better communicate with your dev team, you should know that there are some things that devs LOVE hearing from non-developers. For example, developers love hearing how you “saved them some time” by making difficult and course-altering technical decisions without consulting them. Thanks so much for thinking of your dev team! I swear we’re NOT envisioning the days we’ll lose trying to save the company from a choice you made based on the fact that you knew a little bit of HTML from that one time you coded your MySpace page.

Here are some more things developers love hearing from their non-developer managers:

  • “This change shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.”

  • “Let’s have a meeting!”

  • “Don’t worry too much about security… it’s not like we’re going to get hacked or anything.”

  • “There’s no requirements doc, but I’m sure you can figure it out.”

  • “I know I’m not a developer, but I think you should use this framework my cousin mentioned…”

  • “We don’t need your input because you’re not a creative.”
