We're sold out for the 2017 SF summit. Sorry! Hope to see you in 2018. Drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be kept updated!
If you are technical and manage engineers, learn from and connect with your peers at the fourth annual San Francisco CTO Summit.
Whether you're an engineering manager, VPE or CTO, at this full day (8.30am-7pm), single track summit you'll learn the latest tricks other companies are using to successfully build and run engineering teams. It’s not hard to find a gathering of technologists debating front end frameworks, containerization or the relative benefits of Scala, Clojure and Go. Finding a group of geeks talking about the hard parts of building a successful engineering team is more challenging. Whether you want to hire smarter, refine your culture, improve your processes, manage more effectively or adopt better engineering practices or architectures, the CTO Summits are designed to help you to learn from top practitioners and to share experiences with your peers.
Attendance to the event is strictly limited to engineering leaders. No recruiters, non-technical co-founders or other business stakeholders will be allowed (we enforce this policy strictly and will refund tickets of anyone we can’t admit). That said, we’re not hung up on job titles. Some of our best attendees have titles like CEO or VP Product. As long as you can perform a technical code review, know how to submit a pull request and are interested in more effectively hiring, managing and organizing developers, we can’t wait to meet you!
Over the last two years we sold out the summit series and presented over 100 amazing talks from senior engineering leaders representing companies including Twitter, Stripe, Snapchat, Coinbase, Zenefits, Zendesk, Chef, GitHub, Atlassian, MongoDB, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Groupon, Tough Mudder, CustomInk, Spotify, Amazon, Condé Nast, Computech, comScore, Australia Post, Cisco and Oracle amongst many others. Tickets will sell out quickly, so get yours now!
