Overview:CTO School is a meetup for CTOs, VP Eng, or Tech Leads that are interested in improving their skills and learning from each other. We are more focused on startups in terms of topic selection, but welcome all technologists. The goal is to have an ongoing forum for senior technical people (esp. in startups) to discuss their issues, meet each other, and share expertise. Secondary goals is to help grow the New York technology and startup ecosystem by building better technical leadership capacity.
The focus is both on people who are already in CTO / VP Eng roles AND people who are on their way there. One of the “use cases” is to have CTO school be an organization that a CTO encourages his lieutenants to join CTO school. If they attend meetings regularly, over time they will get exposed to the different areas of technical leadership, which will prepare them for more senior roles.
Membership is by approval, and ONLY technical people are allowed to join. The membership is open to senior technical leaders, or people on the cusp of getting there (e.g. lead developers).
The goal is to have an ongoing forum for senior technical people (esp. in startups) to discuss their issues, weather the issues related to management, process or technology.
We meet on the second Monday of every month.
