Seeking career advice: continue to code (and get better at it) or take on architecture role (more people time)?

How would you strategize?


@ykgoon how good are you at programming? A 10xer? If so, lead with code. If not, go architect and manager, and work on meta/toolchain stuff to keep hands-on skills up to par enough to command respect.
