End notes
I’m in Bavaria for SOSUDE this week, so if you fancy meeting up to talk hiring and /or to help me eat Schweinhaxe then let me know. Also, as a speaker I have two FREE tickets which I had forgotten to distribute. Hit me up if you are in Munich on 25th / 26th April and want to attend as my guests – I’ll just give them to ya.
Have a great week everybody!
