Hey there!
There’s a lot to look forward to next week - we have two CTO Craft Bytes sessions lined up, following a massively popular event on Friday last week. Here’s what’s in store:
We’ll be running a free Mentoring Circle session for members in North America later this week - this session is full, but if you’d like to chat about joining a Circle near you, reply to this email and we’ll get something in the diary.

Hywel Carver of Skiller Whale is running some more of his excellent Tech Lead Dinner events, online:
Early-stage teams (still being a developer, as well as leading) on 21 April
One-tier teams (leading a team) on 28 April
Two-tier teams (leading the team leads who lead teams) on 5 May
Huge teams (too big to have a two-tier structure) on 12 May

Stay safe, and see you soon

CTO Craft Bytes - AWS Cost Optimisation
Last Friday we ran a Bytes session with Rob De Feo, Startup Advocate at AWS and Jon Topper, Founder at the Scale Factory, where we explored ways of reducing costs in AWS. The recording is here:
