CTO for Dummies

newsletter #11

First of all – what exactly is a CTO and how does it leverage any business?

The Global CTO Survey

The survey conducted by STXNext dives deep into several aspects of the CTO’s job, from tech stack choices through hiring tactics to their investment in self-development, for which, many CTOs decided to share their experiences.
