Issue 245

Another Tuesday, I hope this finds you all well.

It seems a long time since I used to start this email with where I was heading to next. I should have been leaving for An Event Apart and SmashingConf at the end of this week. I'm sad that I'll not be getting to see everyone there. However, I do have my virtual workshop next week to prepare for, and I think there will be more online things to come. It will be a very different 2020 to the one we all had planned, but I am enjoying seeing all of the creative ways people are continuing to share, learn and keep connected.

Stay safe!
