ThoughtWorks Atlanta Presents

The Tech Radar

Light refreshments and discussion on Tuesday, February 13th from 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Join Alex and Matthew for discussion and debate on the new edition of our Technology Radar.

Take part in a discussion on the newest edition of the Tech Radar, learn how to build your own custom Radar, and of course, enjoy a few bites to eat and great networking with your fellow technologists.

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

So what is the Tech Radar? At ThoughtWorks, our Technology Advisory Board creates the tech radar twice a year. The radar lays out the changes that we think are  interesting in software development right now - things in motion that we think you should pay attention to and consider using in your projects. 

The thing is, the Technology Advisory Board is a group of senior technologists - individuals with different opinions based on day-to-day work and experiences. While we think the content is important and interesting, it's just that: what we think is important. We invite commentary and discussion from fellow technologists and businesses invested in their technology strategy at events around the world celebrating the launch of the Radar.
