Ctx: News in brief

Ah, Squirrel, my old friend

We've completed alpha testing and now preparing formal beta testing. (If you've expressed an interest in helping - then please hold tight - it's coming!) Yes, we're a little behind schedule, but what else is new?!


The team continues to grow - we look forward to welcoming the 7th member of the team in mid-May.

In the meantime, meet the rest of the team, here.

lunch && code

We're in the process of getting the lunch&&code geekouts going again. If you'd like to be kept in touch, then please join its email list, here.

AND if you're just dying to talk about some latest tech trend, pet project or other mysterious tech topic, please do get in touch! (Seriously; do it. It's fun!)

That should do for now. As ever, follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook for a more regular dose of Cortex-y goodness. And if you're new to the snoozeletter, be sure to check out the archive (if only to explain the squirrel.)

But until next time, all best from the team at Cortex xxx
