About CTO Lunches
In 2014, Miles Matthias & Kevin Owocki were talking about becoming CTOs of their respective startups and asked the question, "How do computer science people figure out how to lead a team?" We started a monthly lunch with a few people more experienced than us to answer that question. Fast forward a few years, and now the group has 900+ engineering leaders in an active email and monthly lunch group.
Group Rules
1. Current or former engineering leaders only. No recruiters, no sales people, no gimmicks.

2. The core community will always be FREE.

3. The continual goal for group owners is to add value to the group. New projects might involve sponsors, but the core monthly lunches and email discussions will never be changed, or allowed to be invaded by sponsors or non-engineering leaders.
