I do a lot of executive round tables - 13 last year, 4 already this year. We’re finally have some in-person ones again. We have one coming up on April 26th in Chicago. Before the usual Executive Hanging-out I’ll have a discussion with an executive about how they’ve been doing all the transformation stuff, probably focusing on the challenges they’ve faced scaling “doing better software” to more and more teams. We’ll probably talk about “we don’t talk about PaaS” too.
I don’t know how they pick people for this invite only event, but if you think you belong there, register for it and see what happens!
