Stoa Digest #08: IRL >> URL
We reckon this title implies what needs to be understood, pretty well. Correct us if we're wrong.
Highlight of the Week
We had three city meet-ups this week!! THREE!!!
Pune, Coimbatore and Delhi!!!
Gotta say, we weren’t expecting it to happen so quick, but the orchestrators for each city deserve all your love for symphonising this meet-up.
Also, you now owe them to organise the next one.
When’s it going to be?
Here’s the photos for you if you’ve found it too tedious to scroll to the #meetups channel to see.
Sidenote: we hope you liked the irl people you met!!
Let’s Rewind: Last Week at Stoa 📆
We had Tooling Workshops run simultaneously for both CH2 & CH3.
One for Figma, and the other for Notion, and it seems like they both went rather well.
If we’re lucky, maybe CH3 will show us what they built with Notion in the comments, or we’ll just go another week with 0 comments on the Digest.
And then we had Kaushik Mukherjee, Chief Operating Officer of Sugar Cosmetics come talk to us about building a $100M brand.
You can find the recording, that is EXTREMELY worth a watch, here.
Tonight by the time you’ve received this, we’re going to archive all our #Learn channels, and move them to our Circle space.
For other cool details, you can go read our nice e-mail that’s probably lying lonesome & desolate in your inboxes!
Also, this Friday we’re holding a Public Event on leveraging “Twitter for Professionals” - it’s none other than our very own Twitter Pro Raj facilitating it, so you can bet that there’ll be some big gems to steal away from it.
If you know of friends, colleagues or family who should be on Twitter, but aren’t and don’t know how to start, this might be a great point to start.
