7 SKILLS OF A GOOD TEAM LEADER IN SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
A team which works together well and happily is a more efficient team since their union can bring out the best in them. Making a team work together requires a keen understanding of people.
It is also highly important that the team leader in software development be able to identify the strengths and what gets them excited to interact with others. Moreover, it is key to listen to their demands for attention, recognition, and feedback in order to ensure the team stays on track.
Feedback should be proactive and constant. Many leaders are prone to wait until a problem occurs before they give feedback. The best thing to do is have an internal process that states that leaders should give goals and formal feedback every 6 months.
Delegating tasks to the right individual is an important management skill for team leaders in the software development industry as it allows them to be focused on the truly important aspects of the project.
Delegation is possible when the leader has a good understanding of each and every team member. In a development team, each member can have different interests; for instance, some can be good in front end tasks, while others prefer back end tasks. Based on the different abilities each person has, the task has to be assigned.
Delegating well increases productivity and confidence within the team. Leaders that are good delegators, that challenge their team with important responsibilities build their commitment, hard work, and satisfaction.
Autonomy is essential to build trust in employee engagement. In an Agile environment, leaders provide the team members with clear goals and let them find the best way to achieve them.
If the leader does not rely on team input, autonomy is not possible. The leader should guide the group through the delivery and allow them to be self-directing. When they feel that their leaders trust them, they are more engaged since they feel in command of their time, effort, and reward.
Provide your team with the needed training to advance in their careers and to become knowledgeable about the newest technologies.
This is a good way to maintain motivation in developer teams and can help to keep the team members who are developing their skills while working hard on the delivery assigned.
Things can go wrong both on a project and within the team, and in those moments, it is important to avoid getting caught up in the blame game and to try to identify those responsible for the mistakes.
A team leader in software development needs to understand the problems, help the team overcome them, and more importantly, learn from the problem so that it does not happen again. If the problem has to do with an issue with the code, a quality software improvement with unit/integration tests could be a possible solution. On the other hand, if it is about a process issue, it will be necessary to update internal processes.
Leaders that are destructively critical about mistakes destroy employee engagement. Good leaders, instead of punishing mistakes, encourage their people to try again.
6. PROBLEM SOLVING
As team leaders, the responsibility is to minimize how often problems take place, which means we must be brave enough to solve them right away before things go wrong.
Leaders must have the ability to guide teams through the problem solving process and come up with positive results. They also realize that the team needs to have some guidelines to keep them on track.
Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, expectations, and outcomes. It is an important attribute of a great leader to demonstrate commitment to do the right thing for the right reason, regardless of the circumstances and to make the team members to follow him/her in these values and ethical practices.
Integrity makes a leader highly trusted, and leaders who inspire trust obtain better results and loyalty from the working team.
Being a good team leader in software development is not just a matter of having charisma. It involves a set of skills and attributes that people acquire through experience. Having great leaders will definitely impact your software solution’s result.

An equinox is an astronomical event that occurs due to the Earth's tilt on its axis. For half the year, the northern hemisphere gets more daylight while for the other half the southern hemisphere has "longer" days.
What happens during the spring equinox?
The March equinox marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator - the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth's equator - from south to north. This happens on March 19, 20, or 21 every year.

With geo-political factors impacting crude prices, India needs to have a good oil hedging policy as the volatility will continue to rise, former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor, Raghuram Rajan said Wednesday.
Rajan said the issue has been discussed in the past and it began with a strategic petroleum reserve, but beyond that there is a need to think about hedging oil prices especially when it comes to levels such as now.
"There is a very strong need for an oil hedging mechanism for a country like ours which is so dependent on oil," Rajan said in a pre-recorded interview being telecast at Times Network's India Economic Conclave.
The problem is many who are entrusted with this, fear the chance of oil prices falling even further if you hedge it, but that has to be taken as a national consequence of the hedging programme. "We, as a country, must think about whether we should start this process," he said.
Raghuram Rajan said as far the GDP growth number is concerned, there is always a need to do more.
Giving an analogy, he explained, "The proof of the pudding is sometimes in the eating. If 25 million people are applying for 90,000 jobs, it suggests that we are not supplying that many jobs and that means growth is not strong enough at least in the job creating areas," he said.
According to him at this time one of the biggest areas of concern is state deficits, especially during election time where many states are promised waivers and also dole out goodies to attract votes.
"This, often hampers them later on because ultimately what is suffering is investment," He said.
Rajan said if we look at agrarian unrest, one of the big concerns is that agrarian productivity has not increased as it should, and the prices have been fluctuating.
"The effect of all this is that people are getting more and more concerned that they don't have access to a good livelihood," he added.
On land acquisition for projects, Rajan said there is a need to improve the pace of the process by making land rights much clearer, as there are some states where land rights are opaque, and also having a decent price as well as some kind of long-term incentives.
There is a need to focus on macro stability and distress sectors such as agriculture, banking and power sector, and try to get them back on track, he noted.
"There is no immediate reason to be overly concerned about India but there is a reason to revisit our growth path to ensure that it is stable, sustainable and equitable. If we do that we are on the right track," Rajan said.
Rajan also emphasised on having good and reliable data in the country to help decision makers formulate policies.
"As we go forward and become a USD 5 trillion economy from the over USD 2.5 trillion we are now, we need to have robust data and rely on data and take economic decisions on that basis," Rajan said.

ISRO space record - A Successful launch of Cartosat-2 and 103 other satellites
A Proud Moment for India
PSLV first launched the 714 kg Cartosat-2 Series satellite for earth observation, followed by the INS-1A and INS-1B, after it reached the polar Sun Synchronous Orbit. It then went on to inject 103 co-passenger satellites, together weighing about 664 kg, in pairs.
ISRO scientists used the XL Variant - the most powerful rocket - earlier used in the ambitious Chandrayaan and during the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).
