Lightning Talks: Sharing Our Biggest Mistakes!
Enough of those self-promoting talks where speakers tell everyone how wonderful their team/project/product/company is. We all know that's a carefully curated social news feed no better than Facebook or Instagram that just makes you feel inadequeat because your team/project/product/company isn't as good. Instead, let's take turns of five minutes or so each confessing our biggest career mistakes and what we learned from them. Let's embrace our failures in a safe space with no recording equipment present :) Please bring your career stories of things that didn't kill you and made you stronger - we'd love to hear from you too in this highly interactive session at CTO School., where we welcome people interested in the full breadth of a career in technology from all backgrounds and skill levels. We have nice food, too that's not pizza :)

    What we're about

    CTO School Melbourne is modelled on the popular CTO School in New York ( It’s a meetup for people in the CTO role or aspiring to get there. We’re not fussy about titles; it’s for people operating in a CTO-type of function. It is focussed on sharing experience and knowledge so we can all fill gaps in our skills, and improve in the role that prospers at the nexus of technology, process, management, business, and culture. It does not have a focus on solely technology topics, but rather how a technology affects process and business, for example, and other cross-discipline areas of interest. Meeting monthly in a casual and friendly environment, we invite experienced CTOs and domain experts to give interactive presentations, sit on a panel to discuss a topic, or join us for an unstructured, free-ranging fireside chat. There’s a big emphasis on being able to ask questions. The meetup is usually accompanied by some food and a drink.
