Florian Haas, our VP of Education, is one of several thought leaders at City Network.
Their long term mission is to close the skills gap in the IT industry with a specific aim at distributed technology.
Distribution is a recurring theme with Florian, whether it be technology, development or teams. The latter is an area of particular interest for him, and he is a keen advocate for better communications in distributed teams.
The recordings from his talks were recently made available and today we wanted to share them with you.

The second is 5-minute talk delivered as part of a round of Ignite talks. The premise is basically to deliver your talk in 5 minutes.
