I have been approached by a previous co-worker to become a CTO for a startup that they are creating. Its in the very early stage (company hasn't even been formally formed yet but there is a willing investor already). Its still far from being a "real" company and I'm just using my free time to work out a prototype.
I am currently working as a programmer and have zero experience on being a CTO. The CEO has described what my role would be and I'm confident I can do the job, however, I have a few concerns. We'll be having another meeting this weekend and I'm doing a bit of research.
might I also add that this is a software startup. The CTO is just a fancy title, its more like lead developer.
