Peter BellIf you’re technical, run engineering teams and might be able to make it to NYC on November 1st, I’d love to invite you to attend the CTO Connection/Nasdaq Startup CTO Summit (and to provide a personal discount code) – our fifteenth summit worldwide in the last 2.5 yrs.

Whether you’re a team lead, engineering manager, VPE or CTO, at this full day (8am-7.30pm), single track summit you’ll learn the latest tricks other fast growth companies are using to successfully build and run engineering teams.

The presenters include senior engineering leaders at MongoDB, Birchbox, Invision, Shopify, Blue Apron,, 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!

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!

The CTO summits are a labor of love. Given that, I’d like to personally offer you a 40% discount off of admission to get you involved, and if for any reason cost is still an issue, drop me a line and I’ll do my best to come up with something that’ll allow you to attend the conference. Use the code “linkedin_connection” for 40% off. Early bird ticket sales end this Friday (October 14th).

For more information, or to sign up, please go here:

I hope to see you there. We’re already 60% sold-out, so if you do want to attend, you probably want to sign up this week if you possibly can.

Best Wishes,
Peter Bell
