Hey Guys,

This is not exactly related to the ideas you guys are speaking about, but there is some overlap, so wanted to bring this up.?? I (together with some guys from NextNY) am putting together a curriculum for a Startup CTO School, a series of seminars aimed at lead technologists in startups.??

Peter, you are already on my list of people to reach out to :-).? Actually, inspired by some of your experiences I am trying to make the curriculum more interactive than I otherwise would.?

The focus is not on developers in general, but some of the topics will be overlapping, so we should coordinate the efforts (i.e. if we find a great speaker for a particular topic).?? I am planning to finish the curriculum in the next few days, and then we'll try to solicit feedback and start looking for speakers.

What is This?
CTO School is a seminar series to help techies who find themselves in a technical leadership role at a startup learn some of the skills needed to excel and share experiences .? It is organized by the New York Tech Community, NextNY, ......

Who Is This For?
This course is meant for somebody who has development experience, and possibly even some team leadership experience who is now working for a web startup in the leading capacity.? You are the technology guy responsible for the product, whether your title is lead developer, CTO, or VP Engineering, or "The technical guy".

Your role is to support the business strategy of your business by formulating and executing technical strategy.

Peter, Gary, et al,
??I am really interested to read this thread. ?I know members of Ultra Light Startups are constantly looking for ways to connect with developers. ?My recently launched startup, BrightMap is built on Ruby/Rails and also started hosting the weekly Ruby Meetup at our offices at the NYU Polytechnic Incubator once per month. ?I many incentives to connect developers and entrepreneurs in these groups and would love to help in any way I can.

I'm not quite sure how to take this from here. ?It seems like there are several great ideas in the various threads/postings. ?Let me know how I can be of use to this initiative.
