    Yes they'll likely ask you to code, do systems design etc

      If managers code then what developers will do?
      I think leave the management to managers. Don't mix it else there will be conflict of interest.

      Frontline managers are expected to be able to code, especially if the team is small

      Then hire more developers. Why to compromise on code quality with a timepass type developer you got as a manager. Not worth it. You can't compare code quality between Dev & mgr.

    Then get ready for the coding portion. Expect to code on a whiteboard during the interview (something you should absolutely practice ahead of time—it’s more difficult than you might think), and be prepared for some potential system design questions as well.

    Ask your recruiter - they will be transparent about what to expect.
