Imagine you are leading a small startup engineering team, minding your own business, then BOOM! Suddenly you’ve been acquired by a company that is about 30 times your size. Their engineering team is much larger and uses a completely different tech stack. Oh, and it's located in another country, so you are now essentially their first remote engineering team. Your job is to make the integration an amazing success. Go!If you’re currently going through a post-merger integration and losing sleep over it, or if you simply want to be prepared, then this is just the session for you.

You’ll see what worked and what didn’t so you can make your own acquisition a phenomenal success.
