StartupSD San Diego Startup Week Developer Track Events Launch Fest

SDSW 2015 — Developers Track

Being a Developer is not just about sitting in a code hole at 3:00AM fixing fork issues on production pushes (though, you do need to fix that fork issue). The Developer Track of San Diego Startup Week explores the many aspects of being a developer, working with developers, becoming a lead developer and being a great leader once you are a VP of Engineering or CTO. Wherever you are, or whatever your level of interest in the world of code and technology Startup Week’s Developer Track has something for you!

The Developer Track offers events to challenge your limits, open your eyes to new languages and get your creative and innovative juices flowing. Make no mistake, entrepreneurs will have just as much to learn and enjoy on the Developer tracks as coders will.

Get Startup Week kicked off right with 7CTOs (@7ctos) co-founders Michael Saul and Etienne de Bruin as they host the Innovative CTO Mini-Lab. This is the place to begin your Startup Week journey. Pick up coaching from executive development coach Michael Saul in EQ (emotional intelligence) and learn to think outside the box and lead from within your organization. This event is sure to start your week off in alignment with your best, most innovative self.
