What we're about

Come and hear live debates from Chicago techies. We are a bunch of Chicago techies who love to debate anything and everything having to do with Chicago tech. Each month, we bring together a panel of technologists with diverse topical perspectives, and moderate a lively, energized debate.

Some things just don’t change, only the topics do. We are Chicago Tech Debates, where AWS versus Google Cloud or Azure, Full Stack versus Specialization, React Native versus Swift and Java, Best practices in Micro-services architecture, How to Hire Developers are just some of the things we might discuss. Informative, entertaining, and thought provoking, our mission each month is to bring together a diverse representation of Chicago’s tech community for conversation, conviviality, and networking around a current topic of interest to Chicago’s tech community.

We encourage you to suggest one or more topics, and nominate any lively debaters who are willing to offer their opinion in a friendly but assertive way.
