Main CTO Day

For our close community of CTOs and lead developers we organize the Main CTO Day. During this day we will host several presentations on new developments in the ever-evolving technology landscape. We believe it is highly important to take the time to share knowledge, experiences and great ideas with a group of like-minded tech leaders.
