During the Toptal Road Trip USA, we will be supporting tech communities all around the United States of America and organizing events. As part of that mission, we’re proud to be partnering with Startup Basecamp and NomadPass to organize San Francisco Top Talks, lightning round presentations where speakers give a five-minute talk on a themed subject, then answer three minutes of Q&A.
The theme for the night is “Work & Travel: How to Make it Happen”. Speakers will present tips and tricks for anyone interested in making the leap to long-term travel while working remotely. Food and drinks will be served, and there will be plenty of time to socialize as well.
San Francisco Top Talks will be taking place on Wednesday, April 26th at Startup Basecamp. This event is free and open to anyone who is interested in Toptal. If you have any questions, please contact the event organizer, Ethan Brooks.
Organizing and curating Toptal events takes a lot of work, but it's certainly rewarding. We welcome all Toptalers who are excited about organizing and executing awesome events in their city. These events are great for meeting tech leaders, making new connections, and helping your community to grow. Sign up here or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
