Welcome Letter ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ
Hi my name is Caleb. This is my newsletter. ๐Ÿ—ž๏ธ

It's been a while since I released a new episode on People In Tech. Some of you reading this might be curious to know what's been going on.

Decided a newsletter was the next move.

I still plan on making more YouTube content but a newsletter let's me provide informative content fast ๐Ÿ’จ

Don't forget to subscribe to the channel. I do have a few good interviews lined up for the beginning of Summer 2022. ๐Ÿ“บ

Our first interview is with Kathryn Fortin who is a experience IT leader who is going to come on and discuss "managing a chaotic project"

What is the newsletter about?

It's focused towards people who work with software.

  • Software engineers
  • Product owners
  • Designers
  • Project Managers
  • Engineering Managers

If you want to be informed about the tech space and understand how things works, this newsletter is for you.

Good news ๐Ÿฅณ I have ๐Ÿ’ฏ+ post ready for you right now! Each post falls into a different category. There are explainers, tutorials and thoughts.

Sneak Peek on future post ๐Ÿ”ฎ

  • The Tech Layoffs
  • How I manage 1 on 1s
  • SSO/OKTA Explained
  • Which is the best cloud option?
  • First steps, building your idea
  • Build a Website with Notion
  • How I built this newsletter
  • How to build a new team from scratch
  • Where I would go if you are looking for a tech job.

I've been creating podcasts for years but I'm especially excited to create this newsletter. The podcast will feature more interviews with guest moving forward.

The Price

  • Monthly - 14.99
  • Yearly - $119

I pushing the level of transparency to 11. Even the best tech people in the world make mistakes, and I thought that it would be refreshing and insightful to be open and honest with subscribers about the lessons learned during my tech journey.

I wanted to ensure that my pricing reflected my own belief, and one I expected to be demanded of by subscribers, that this was a higher value offering. This was the entire output of an experienced IT professional who would be working tirelessly with his sole focus on this research service.

I want to set the clear expectation that every single post sent to subscribers would be worth 10-15 minutes of their day.

Let's do a quick recap

  • 2018: I started the People In Tech Podcast
  • 2019: Producing 3-5 episodes per week and reaching Anchor's top 10 pods
  • 2019: Got Married ๐Ÿ™Œ
  • 2020: Became a dad
  • 2020: After 75+ episodes I take a break from the show and stop recording.
  • 2021: I started to learn animation and started YouTube
  • 2022: Launch the Tech Dad newsletter.

Finals thoughts

I am curious what is going to be the feedback for the first post. If you have questions on a post you want me to discuss, reach out.

You can expect future post to be informative without being too technical. Complexity broken down is the goal.
