Promoted from software engineer to architect, how to prepare?
I'm a senior software engineer with 7 years of backend development and 3 years of frontend development. Currently I am the most experienced backend swe in current team, 20 devs and 20 other roles. Sometimes I feel I am the tech lead in the team besides our architect. Recently I am told that the company want me to be an architect for another project to migrate it to gcp. I was never a tech lead or architect before. What should I prepare for this promotion?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
