“You can’t build it right the first time. Don’t try. Look at the problems that are going to be in front of you in the next 12 months. Pick tools and capabilities that will allow you to be successful. Live to fight another day.” – Steve Milton

In this fireside chat delivered at CTO School, Steve offers meaningful advice to engineers who aspire to be CTOs at high-growth and innovative startups. Engineers who aspire to be leaders in these challenging environments have to understand how to build software in the face of uncertainty, foster collaboration between teams that are moving unbelievably fast, store and analyze increasing volumes of data, and understand how software fits in the larger challenge of building a business that people love.

Steve is currently Co-founder & CTO at PlaceIQ, one of NY’s fastest growing startups. He has been building technologies and leading teams for over 20 years (you’ll enjoy his stories from the “pre-Internet” days).
