1.? CTO School - free 5-session program for for startup dev leads, vp engineerings, etc.??

I am helping put together a "CTO School", which is a five-session program for first-time CTOs / VP Engineering / Dev Leads in startups.??? Our first session is next Monday, the 27th.??? Speakers will be covering key technical decisions, creating technology development environments, creating culture, scaling, being a key executive, recruiting, hiring, infrastructure--everything a first timer needs to learn on the way to becoming a top tech lead.

Syllabus/RSVP:?? http://nextny.org/CTO-School-F2010

Know any great CTO speakers?? If you know of someone that would be a good match to lead one of our sessions, please introduce us.? We want to get the *most experienced* NYC CTO's involved in passing on their experience.


2.? NY Grails Contractors / Consulting Shops

It would be good to create a resource for contractors and consulting shops that specialize / can do Groovy / Grails projects.? If you are one such shop, please reply this email and introduce your capabilities and experience, so other members can perhaps hire you.?

3.? Reminder - Meeting next Tuesday.?

Our first fall meeting is next Tuesday, the 28th.?? It's about using advanced RIA frameworks such as ZK to build UIs in Grails.?? These frameworks abstract a lot of complexity of AJAX for you, allowing you to work on the server side only.?? Please RSVP:?

4.? Looking for Speakers for Future Meetings

We need speakers for future meetings. If you have something you'd like to talk about, even if it's very short 15 minute show and tell, let me know.?

5.? My company is looking for Grails developers.?

My company, EnergyScoreCards.com, which is in the red-hot cleantech / energy efficiency space, is growing and we are looking for another developer to join the team.? Please reply privately if you are interested.?? We are pretty young, but already have some significant traction and customers.??

Thanks,

Jean
