June 2024

SaaStr, Meetups, Berlin

I kicked off June by heading down to London for a few days with Tadas to attend SaaStr 2024, a conference for software as a service technology businesses. Tadas and I are starting something new, so wanted to network, check in on the state of the industry and spend a few days together working through our idea. Over the month we have refined what we want to work on and are currently looking to speak to Sales leaders who run teams of 2+ sales reps (preferably more!) for research. If this is you and you want to help me other with a call or introduction then get in touch or book some time in my calendar.

We held the last Glasgow and Edinburgh JavaScript meetups before the summer break. I was pleased that Luce Carter travelled up from Manchester to speak with us. I think it shows that we are successfully growing the repuation of our meetups and making it worthwhile for guest speakers to visit. Dave Leitch also provided a bit of fun with his talk on brewing beer with JS, including a wee free sample at the end.

Another month, another taking advantage of our zoo pass. It’s been nice to pop along on a regular basis for a walk, to see a couple of new animals each time, and to get Jack out and about in the sunshine. Half the time he’s more interested in climbing and running up and down the hill, but he’s starting to know the names of the animals and it’s usually a fun time.

At the end of the month Harriet and I had our first extended time away from Jack with a short city break to Berlin. It was a great chance to relax, enjoy some food and the thirty degree heat. I added some photos and links to what we did in my journal.

This month I read:

See you next month!
