Engineering Leaders Lean Coffee

Apto, Inc.

Coffee, tea, or water will be available for attendees. We plan on running this lean coffee style where you'll be expected to bring one topic to talk about with you. We will put all the topics forward, do a quick vote, and chat about that topic for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes we'll do another quick roman vote (thumps up or down) on whether to continue the topic or move on.
