Another week, another newsletter. Let's get to it!
I don't want to give anything away, but neal.fun/space-elevator is such a fun site. Check it out!
Some sound advice for all the speakers and aspiring speakers out there.
"It doesn't matter if you know everything about something. If you cannot build a good story and connect with your audience, you will fail. Storytelling is a crucial soft skill if you want to be a great speaker." – Estela Franco on Twitter

Monday, I gave my talk, "Fresh: a new full stack web framework for Deno", at Node Congress. I was remote, but it was a lot of fun still. Even though I stream all the time, give talks at meetups, lunch & learns at Virtual Coffee etc., this was my first conference talk!
The video recording isn't available yet, but you'll find it here 👇🏻
I also had a tonne of fun hanging with Shruti Kapoor this week. We dug into the
