The Boston CTO Summit - 2014
Sorry - we're sold out for this year. Feel free to fill out the form below to register interest for next year
If you manage engineers, come learn from and connect with your peers at the Boston CTO summit. The CTO Summit Series was created to allow CTO’s and engineering leaders to learn from and connect with their peers. It’s not hard to find a gathering of technologists debating front end frameworks, containerization or the relative benefits of Scala, Clojure and Go. Finding a group of geeks talking about the hard parts of building a successful engineering team like hiring, developing an engineering culture and managing (your team and your boss) is more challenging.
Each summit is a full day, single track event for learning from and connecting with your peers that are running fast growth engineering teams.
