Can you walk me through the process you use to approach a new project?

Certainly! As a tech lead, my approach to a new project typically involves the following steps:

1. Gather requirements: The first step is to gather all the requirements for the project. This involves meeting with stakeholders, including business owners, project managers, and end-users, to understand their needs and goals for the project.

2. Define scope: Once the requirements are gathered, it’s important to define the scope of the project, including what features and functionality will be included and what is out of scope. This helps to ensure that the project stays on track and that the team can deliver a quality product within the allocated timeframe.

3. Define architecture: Based on the requirements and scope, I will then define the architecture for the project. This includes identifying the appropriate technologies, frameworks, and tools to use, as well as defining the overall architecture and structure of the application.

4. Develop a plan: With the architecture defined, I will develop a project plan that outlines the timeline, milestones, and deliverables for the project. This helps to keep the project on track and ensure that everyone involved understands their roles and responsibilities.

5. Assemble the team: Once the plan is in place, I will assemble the team that will be working on the project. This involves identifying the necessary skills and expertise required for the project and assembling a team that can work together effectively.

6. Implement and test: With the team in place, we will begin implementing the project, starting with the core functionality and gradually building out additional features. We will also test the application regularly to ensure that it is working as expected and that any issues are identified and resolved promptly.

7. Deployment and maintenance: Once the application is complete, we will deploy it to production and monitor it to ensure that it is running smoothly. We will also provide ongoing maintenance and support to ensure that the application remains up-to-date and secure.

Overall, my approach to a new project involves careful planning, attention to detail, and a focus on delivering a quality product that meets the needs of the stakeholders and end-users.
