Engineers & Tech Leaders
I enjoyed the panels and sessions I attended and got to learn from other experienced engineers about interesting challenges - technical and other. I got the opportunity to meet with very interesting companies I wasn't familiar with before meeting them at the conference and had the chance to set up interviews with them.
I found the company presentations and panels super useful to learn about new technologies and products out in the market. The panels were a great way to learn best practices about how different leaders are trying to make a change in their organizations.
Loved the 1:1 interaction that we had leading up to the event. The quality of candidates was great. Will definitely want to attend future ones!
