Are you technical and do you manage engineers? Want to learn the latest tips and tricks for building and managing engineering teams from top venture backed CTOs? On Tuesday December 18th, at the Nasdaq Marketsite in Times Square, learn from speakers including the CTOs of MongoDB, Meetup, Greenhouse, Grubhub, Mode Analytics and 2U and senior engineering leaders from Shopify, WeWork, CircleCI, Flatiron Health, Mapbox, LaunchDarkly and more.
The CTO Summits are designed to help you to connect with and learn from your peers. Last year we had 200 engineering leaders in-person at the NY summit, and attendance will also provide you with access to a private invite-only community of thousands of engineering leaders worldwide.
It’s easy to find the latest information on technical topics, but at CTO connection we foster discussions about the hard parts of building a successful engineering team. Whether you want to better build, manage or scale your engineering org.
It’s a single track, full day (8am-7.30pm) event designed for and by engineering leaders (our founder was a startup CTO). One of the most important parts of the events is the attendees. We only allow engineering leaders to attend (typically engineering manager or higher, with 70%+ of attendees being CTO, VPE or Engineering Director level). It’s a great opportunity to build your network while also learning how other engineering leaders are solving common organizational and architectural problems, and every presentation is just 20 minutes long, providing quick, novel and actionable advice for improving your team and nurturing your career.
There are no vendor talks – you’re the audience and the community – not the product. As such, the event is supported by ticket sales. If you can afford a full price ticket, your support is much appreciated.
If you can’t swing it, we’ve created a special discount code of “ctovision” which will provide you with a full 25% off!
If price is still an absolute blocker, drop me a line – firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll see if there’s anything else I can do. If you happen to be from an group that is traditionally under represented in tech, and price is a barrier to entrance, please drop me a line as we have some special discounts designed specifically to improve the diversity of the attendees.
