Every company is now a technology company. Even if your company isn’t developing software as its primary product, you are still a technology company. Why? Because you need a robust technical team to power your internal systems and remain relevant to the outside world.

As a result of the global need for developers, there is a high demand for recruiting them, across all types of companies. This event will hear from industry experts on how to successfully attract and engage technical talent in a competitive landscape.
