Whether you’re a team lead, engineering manager, VPE or CTO, you need to be at this full day, single track summit. This year we have changed the format to include interactive roundtable and panel discussions, as well as expert talks. Spend the day listening and talking to peers and get a fresh perspective which can strengthen or challenge your own views – learn how to hire smarter, refine your culture, improve your processes, manage more effectively and adopt better engineering practices or architectures.

Limited attendance ensures that it’s easier to facilitate an open dialogue with peers. Attendance is limited to senior engineering leaders, although we are not hung up on titles; it is your technical management leadership that matters. YOW! reserves the right to deny admission to attendees who the independent program committee feels are not members of the peer group.
