A group of NYC Startup CTOs, VP of Engineering, Tech Leads, and technologists who would like to become better leaders.
Membership is by approval, and ONLY technical people are encouraged to join. The membership is open to senior and mid-level 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, whether the issues are related to people management and leadership, 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.
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.
