Event description

Description

Managing Software engineers and IT programs is hard work! Being successful requires a growth mindset, continual professional development, and a support network of peers facing the same problems. There should be a forum where IT managers can learn from others to tackle common management issues and continue their professional development.

This meet up is a place where IT managers can come together to build relationships, progress in their field, and learn new techniques from people who have been in IT leadership positions. Come ready to listen, learn, and engage with other managers struggling with similar issues.

Event Topic: Always be recruiting: How to Win at Hiring in a Tight Market

Speaker: Ron Lichty

Ron Lichty has been managing software development and product organizations for 30 years at companies of all sizes, the most recent seven years as a consulting interim VP Engineering, http://www.ronlichty.com.

Ron’s fifth book, Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams (http://www.ManagingTheUnmanageable.net), published by Addison Wesley, has been compared by many readers to programming classics The Mythical Man-Month and Peopleware. His video training, Live Lessons: Managing Software People and Teams, is available via O’Reilly’s Safari Bookshelf (http://www.ManagingTheUnmanageable.net/video.html).

In addition to taking on interim VP Engineering roles (and co-chairing the Silicon Valley Engineering Leadership Community in Palo Alto, California), he coaches team leads, CTOs and VPEs, and trains leaders and teams in agile effectiveness. Ron will be providing a 40% book discount to all attendees for his new edition and also doing a book raffle for his current edition.
