AMAZING CTO Newsletter - 6 reasons to signup

The weekly, curated, need-to-know newsletter for CTOs and Engineering Managers

Every Friday I send out a curated newsletter for busy people who care about being a CTO, leadership, software development and people for your sunny weekend to enjoy. Here are your 6 reasons to signup:

1 Be in the loop

You get the latest tips on management and strategies to cope with problems. The articles are curated by me according to what I consider relevant for an CTO (and sometimes fun :-) It comes right into your inbox every Friday for easy Friday afternoon reading.

2 Free

Hard to beat the price.

3 Safe

I will not sell your email addresses or give them away to other persons or companies. The email provider I use for sending emails is in the EU (Germany to be specific). I’d rather pay more, so you can have your privacy. I’m also not uploading the email addresses to Facebook or Linkedin for targeted advertising. I’m no longer on Facebook even for privacy reasons.

4 Special Offers

The newsletter from time to time contains special offers to books, courses, trainings or conferences.

5 Painless

It is easy to unsubscribe, no dark patterns, no hoops you need to jump through and no waiting time for the unsubscribe.
