A group of NYC Startup CTOs, VP of Engineering, Tech Leads, and technologists who would like to become leaders.

Membership is by approval, and ONLY technical people are allowed to join.   The membership is open to senior technical leaders, or people on the cusp of getting there (e.g. lead developers).

The goal is to have an ongoing forum for technical leaders (esp. in startups) to discuss their issues, weather the issues related to management, process or technology.

We meet on the second Monday of every month and have a speaker on relevant topics, from general topics, like how to create great engineering culture, to technology areas - e.g. comparison of cloud platforms.

Founded in 2009, Some of the past speakers include Kellan, CTO of Etsy, Nick Ganju, CTO of ZocDoc, Mike Bryzek, CTO of Gilt, Michael Nygard, Camille Fournier, CTO of Rent The Runway, Jim Benson, author of Personal Kanban, and many others.
