What we're about

Many tech leaders get the job by default. They’re the best or most senior technologist and suddenly find themselves leading meetings, negotiating for resources, making strategic decisions their bosses don’t understand and can’t help with, participating in hiring, and a whole range of other mission-critical activities that fall outside of the technical toolbox. This meetup is for tech leads, managers, and directors of technical teams to get together a few times a year to learn, share, and have some fun. Sign up, let’s meet up, and we’ll find ways to help each other become better leaders. Look for morning and evening meetups, as well as special events a few times each year.

Tech Leader Happy Hour

Drakes

This meetup is for leads, managers, and directors of tech and software teams to get together and learn, share, and have some fun. Happy hours are informal and people will be around between 5:30 - 7:30. Stop by when you can, learn from your peers, and share what you know.

Monthly Tech Leader Coffee and Discussion

Vaco Technology

This group is for those in leadership positions to learn, share best practices, and network with others in the tech community. We have structured these meetings similar to Lean Coffee. As everyone gathers, we will query those present as to what they would like to talk about. We will take a vote and then start talking about the most popular topic. Based upon team, we will continue to go down the list of proposed topics. We now have a Trello board where topics can be added prior to the meeting. Just go to https://trello.com/b/nmCRqR5O to see that board. If you would like access to create cards, please email [masked]. This is a great way to hear how your peers in other companies are addressing issues similar to yours. You will probably find out that the crazy stuff you are dealing with others have dealt with similar issues. Find out how they were able to accomplish it.
