Leadership Dinner: Turning Your Greatest Ideas into Software with High Performance Low Code

June 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$50 – $75

The demands on IT are at the apex, but there are still more apps to build, technologies to integrate, threats to combat and talent to find. Is the constant chasing and fixing forcing your innovation to the side? It’s time to take control of both.

ATC has partnered with OutSystems for a software-centric June Leadership Dinner, where experts will weigh in on how:

  • Shifting your mindset can turn your development team into a high-performance innovation factory
  • Organizations exactly like yours are building web and mobile apps with radical productivity, output and business impact
  • Your existing SaaS architecture can fit into this new high-performance model.
  • Your current talent and team can build the specialized applications you need for your business — in weeks and months, not years



5 p.m. – Networking, Drinks, and Apps

6 p.m. – Panel Discussion

7 p.m. – Dinner

Ron Savarese has been in the software industry since 2008 but has been chasing tech as a personal interest since the days internet speed was measured in baud. That interest in technology and staying up on current trends has been a passion for a long time and led him to where he is today. He cut his teeth initially as a database developer and architect, having built applications while serving in the US Navy, and then went on to eventually manage teams as a director, CTO, and for the past 4 years as President of MicroMain Corporation. The crowning achievement that landed him on this panel of experts – parachuting into the 6th failed iteration of a software redesign from the ground-up. One final project and 7 months later, they had their MVP to release, all built on a no/low-code platform. Today the company does millions in ARR and transitioned 100% of their focus to the new SaaS app built on no/low-code.
