You're Invited:

Build Your Own Radar

December 5th, 2017, 5:30pm

ThoughtWorks New York

Join ThoughtWorks New York for discussion and debate as we build our own Technology Radar.

React or Angular? Microservices or serverless? What's hot, and what's not for development?

Join ThoughtWorks New York City for a night of food, drink and mingling as we explore how technologists can grapple with these questions and make smart choices about the tools, techniques, platforms, frameworks, and languages they use in their projects.

Speaker Neal Ford will talk about the themes behind the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar, which compiles years of experience across different domains to provide well thought-out opinions on many of the trends that are coming and going today. We will learn how to build your own radar and how to use it as a tool to help you and your projects. (For more information, see Build Your Own Technology Radar)

There's no cost to attend the event, and we encourage you to invite anyone you think might be interested in this discussion.
