Developer to Startup CTO

Learn how to move from developer to startup CTO and take your career to the next level

You're already a great developer, the 'go to' person on the team but now you're thinking about the next step in your career. If that next step includes the possibility of taking a chance in the startup world as a technical co-founder or CTO then this is the course for you.

As a startup CTO you will be responsible for implementing and shaping the technical vision of the company but along the way the role will be challenging, fun, frustrating, frightening, satisfying and always ever changing. I'll teach you the skills and knowledge required to successfully make the transition, sharing my experiences in the journey over the last few years.

Our course is geared towards young, growing startups that need to deliver at pace yet put in place the foundations to support growth and change within the business. We'll cover a broad range of subjects and the course will be continually updated which you will receive all updates. Skip ahead to see our in progress cirriculum.
