Born to Code: Geek or Freak?
Limited Capacity seats available

Let's face it - without code there would be no startup ecosystem. Tech is part of just about every product or service out there at some level. So is a great coder born or bred? What does it take to look after your inner geek if it is you? Just how far would you go to keep the best coder you ever had on your team if someone was about to lure them away? Is your great coder "on the spectrum"? And should you care? 

Let's have some fun tackling some of the big questions behind what keeps tech talent delivering for you as an entrepreneur.
