Once you've been around for a while, people (hopefully) start to look up to you, and you may find yourself bestowed with the coveted title of 'Senior'. All is well with the world, until your team leader takes a position elsewhere, and you're asked to cover some of his duties. Before you realize it, you're planning projects, running the day-to-day operations of the team, answering all the questions, and still trying to produce quality code at the same pace as before. It's tough enough to transition from developer to manager in an ideal situation, but being stuck somewhere in the middle has a whole additional set of challenges. I'll discuss these challenges and how to successfully handle them until everything settles out (whether that means you move to management or go back to the code).
