Skills Matter

Skills Matter helps tech-driven businesses attract, retain, inspire and skill developer talent, and professional developers discover emerging technologies, learn and share skills and evolve practices and ideas.

Almost every business today relies on technology to compete. They need highly adaptable and flexible software systems that can respond to fast changing business demands. This need is creating ever more complex engineering challenges. Challenges that can’t be fixed with a nifty snippet of code or knowing how to write well in a certain programming language.

How we help

Solving these type of modern business challenges needs discussions. These challenges need framing by technology innovators and need exploring by a diverse community of experienced and professional engineers, who are facing these challenges every day and are passionate about solving these together.

Skills Matter provides an online and offline platform to explore these challenges with experts and peers, to discover different approaches, technologies and practices together, and to gain the skills they need to adopt these successfully, by learning and sharing with each other. Not annually, not monthly, but every day.

Join our growth journey

Having grown a thriving ecosystem with our community in the UK and Europe, we are now ready to take it global and are raising funding to help us do so in sustainable and profitable way.
