CTOtalk was a rather unique experience. It was very fulfilling to present a deep technical narrative interleaved with the right mix of business motivations. The interactions were just brilliant. And, talk about sticking to the theme - I couldn't tell if the audience were pleased with my talk or the splendid movie popcorn they were served!

CTOtalk was an extremely refreshing experience because of the level of intellectual engagement the crowd demonstrated. And it was an eye opener to the small but fast growing new age consumer software engineering community in Chennai!

Much needed forum to democratize access to knowledge sharing by the real practitioners. Glad to see the endeavour to make it borderless by going online.

CTOtalk helped answer many burning questions that we encountered during our scale up phase and the post talk Q&A was worth as much as the talk itself!

CTOs of young startups or aspiring CTOs did not have a forum to learn from the best in the field till CTOtalk happened. I have attended a few sessions have had immense learnings on how to architect for scale.

I think it is a brilliant idea. While there are a lot of conversations taking place at the software development level, there are none at the CTO level. We need different levels of conversations on technology.

A High for a speaker is relevant, inquisitive & critical audience, CTOtalk had them all. I really enjoyed my time engaging with developers, founders and leaders at CTOtalk. I spent more time post the talk learning from others than the overall time spent on talk. This reflects highly of community CTOtalk is building. Best wishes to take this further.
