Title: Startup life from the eyes of a first time CTO
Speaker: Michael Francis

Michael will be giving a brief talk about his experiences working as the CTO of a new startup company. He will cover topics such as how he decided to choose certain languages to use, as well as his experiences managing a team of engineers. Michael is a recent graduate of Humber College in Toronto, Canada. He started coding at 6 years old when he built a functioning computer out of scraps and manipulated the source code to beat his friend at the popular game “Guerillas” -- he's been exploring computer science ever since. He is passionate about implementing new technologies to solve problems in the world.
