Crack the Code: How to Choose the Right Technology Stack for Your Business

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

RSVP / Register

Choosing the right technology stack can make or break a company. While you might be tempted to go with the newest tech available, chasing that hype can lead to rewriting a stack every 6-12 months.

This presentation, geared toward a new CTO and/or solo engineer in a startup company, will break down the differences between the “server-side” stack and the “client-side” stack, and will distinguish between mobile-first or web-first products and their competing merits.

Choosing a tech stack is a commitment that’s not easily reversed—get it right the first time with our help.

This event is part of the Engineering Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage and Early Stage. 

Our Presenter:

Matt Brand – Head of Engineering, CozyKin

Matt Brand started his career as a pure front-end person, but as a result of being on a lot of founding engineering teams at startups, he is now a full-stack type of person. With almost 20 years in this space, he definitely knows what technology lasts, and what doesn’t.

After spending the first decade of his career as a software engineer, Matt was the CTO and co-founder of Dunwello, where he was responsible for all technology-related decisions at all levels of the stack – from setting up the IT infrastructure to writing the first line of code.

He then went on to become the VP of Engineering at Quilt and the CTO and MoveWith, before joining CozyKin as the head of Engineering in 2018.
