🥪 Hard vs Soft Skills, Acquisitions, Climate Tech, Storytelling, Estimation, Watermelons: TMW #293 by CTO Craft
By Andy @ CTO Craft • Issue #293 • View online
Hello there, welcome to the week!
We’re still hard at work pulling together the agenda for November’s CTO Craft Con - hyperbole acknowledged, this is looking likely to be the best conference we’ve run yet, with more speakers, longer sessions and a full day Unconference that you can submit lightning talks to. Early-bird tickets are still available, and if you’d like to send us an idea for a lightning talk, just drop a reply to this email.
Grab your early-bird ticket here - don’t forget there’s a discount for Community members, so take a look at Slack for a code.
Our CTO Craft Bytes event this Friday will feature Meri Williams, formerly CTO at MOO, Monzo, HealX, Marks & Spencer and many more - she’ll be in conversation with Skiller Whale’s Hywel Carver, where they’ll weigh the importance of Soft and Hard Skills, similarities and how to address gaps in each, for you and your team. It’s a must-watch!
Until we meet again
Andy @ CTO Craft
