Being Your Own CTO

There are a lot of challenges to starting a social enterprise, not the least of which is managing technology. Whether you're outsourcing your development or working with internal resources, it can be hard to know how to communicate your vision and hard to track the progress of your development as it goes. To be truly effective, you need to be able to talk and act like a CTO.

This event will highlight some of the common practices of a CTO, and help you understand how to act as your own CTO to manage your technology development yourself. We will cover such topics as how to create wireframes, use cases, user stories and how to use tools like github, twitter bootstrap and other tools to accelerate your development.

    Three very clear and helpful speakers whose talks all resonated with each other, even as they covered different ground. It helped that the takeaways were summarized at the end of each presentation, as well.
