TLA_insights is my record of curated insights (and notes) on resources I find interesting and relevant on the topics of "Technical Leadership and Architecture" (TLA for short). I publish new "records" regularly in this page and share a digest of new records at the end of each month. You can see this as a sort of hybrid between an archive of curated insights records and a newsletter. I hope you find it interesting, if so you can sign-up to be notified here. If you have question or suggestions, don't hesitate on contacting me via email or on Twitter.
