In our recent webinar on How to Build Physical Products in the Virtual New World, there was so much engagement and conversation happening that we didn’t have time to address all of your questions around remote engineering challenges. To keep the conversation going, we’re starting a new virtual event series for the engineering community: “Builds & Banter.”

In our first session, Fictiv Director of Product Management, Hiro Shimozato, will be joined by Wes Reid and John Cameron of IAM Robotics from the Pittsburgh Robotics Network. Then there will be an opportunity to connect with other engineers in breakout sessions to discuss challenges, questions, and best practices.

We will also answer your live questions during the event and then there will be an opportunity to connect with other engineers in breakout sessions to discuss challenges, questions, and best practices.
