Chief Technology Officer: a title that is clear at a large company, but when you're at a startup it can get pretty murky. Speakers at this event will share experiences and advice on all of the topics that a startup CTO has to be knowledgeable about: coding, hiring, management, architecture, product management, project management, and interfacing with other company executives.

The format of this event will be 3-4 local CTOs interviewed by Miles Matthias. Feel free to reach out to @miles_matthias on Twitter with any startup CTO questions you'd like to ask!
