This is a group for people working at small software development companies (1 to 50 people) to discuss their unique challenges and experiences and share their strategies and solutions for operating effectively at a small scale.
The format is an informal round table. A few suggested topics:
- Software development practices - Finding new customers and clients - Recruiting talent, especially technical - Balancing quality and growth - Cloud-based architecture - Staying current and maintaining awareness - Time management - Remote work and managing distributed teams
We hold events every two weeks to two months at rotating casual bar locations in downtown Seattle on weekday nights.
Working at a small organization presents a different set of challenges than a large organization, and help is much less accessible. Let's create a common space to share expertise, build skills, find mentors, make contacts, and advance all of us together!
