About the conference

Topic:IT
As fast as we're growing our engineering teams, we're also creating engineering leaders and it's often learn-as-you-go. Engineering leadership has a specific set of challenges with respect to the intersection of people, technology and process, and almost no reference material or developmental community surrounding it.
Let’s change that.
We’re bringing together accomplished engineering veterans to address the unique needs of newly minted engineering leaders. We’ll share what it’s like to grow from an engineer to a leader, and offer advice on what to learn in your first few years of leadership.

Feedback

Robert Edward
Director Of Software Development at Glidewell Dental Lab
«It was invaluable for someone with
my odd background and path to software engineering to connect with people from such diverse and impactful companies as you had in attendance.»
Adam Coulter
Manager of Engineering at Sharethrough
«The talks were amazing, but lunch
might have been my favorite part. As an aspiring manager, talking to several people at different stages in their career and different fields was really interesting.»
Sonja Broach
Engineering Manager at Braintree
«At Calibrate I learned that
management is not a set of commits. It’s different for everyone and really, really hard. But the speakers at Calibrate made me even more excited about being an engineering manager. I made invaluable connections to other people in my shoes, and got something tangible out of every single talk.»
