Issues of the newsletter are released four times per year in March, June, September and December. The newsletter serves the SMB community with news and updates, so please share it with your colleagues and contribute content to future issues.
We would like to invite you to submit content to the newsletter. The next issue will be released in September 2019, so if you would like to contribute, please send an email to the editors by the end of July 2019 to discuss how your content can be included. This could include summaries of relevant conferences that you have attended, suggestions for interviews, professional development opportunities etc. Please note that job advertisements should be sent to the SMB digest rather than to the newsletter. Finally, if you have any suggestions on how to improve the newsletter, please contact us at any time. The primary contact editor is Robin.
For this issue of the newsletter we have a guest editor, Navideh Noori. To learn more about Navideh, read her interview here.
We hope you enjoy this issue of the newsletter!
