If you're technical and manage developers, this exclusive, intimate (<200 attendees) event is the perfect chance to connect with and learn from your peers.

Thoughtful presentations on building and managing engineering teams from senior engineering leaders at MongoDB, Birchbox, Invision, Shopify, Blue Apron, x.ai, Artsy, Betterment, Simple and Albert Wenger from Union Square Ventures on "some questions about the future of code". And the attendees are usually as or more impressive than the speakers!
