Hey 🙃
It’s been a while since the last newsletter. I took a few days off at the beginning of August to get married and go on my honeymoon in Sweden, where I learned and experienced the concept of lagom. You can read about it here. 😄

Working as a remote team has also been on my mind a lot recently. I explored this on the blog, looking at the different types of remote teams, talking about why distraction is less of a problem when you work remotely, and debunking the myth that culture is harder to cultivate as a remote team.
I also took a moment to recall one of my very favourite customer support experiences (even if that experience did lead to me getting the sack 🙈🙊).
Jarratt wrote about his personal journey from programming noob to CTO. It’s a really great read, and makes me want to get back behind the code again.

As usual, I’ve also included a few of choice articles and videos we’ve stumbled across in our travels. 👍

Let me know what you think of all of these posts. Go ahead and leave a comment, Tweet at us, and remember to share it if you like it. 🙏
Catch you next time!
Matt 👋
