Skills Matter members have always enjoyed unparalleled access to the tech world’s top experts, innovators and thought-leaders, and now we’re taking that experience one step further with the introduction of new Premium Memberships.
Our community meetups and SkillsCast library will remain 100% free for everyone — we’re simply adding some new benefits, like:
- ✓ Free access to online conferences
- ✓ Exclusive Skills Matter eXpert Forum events
- ✓ Access to quarterly 90 Minutes with… keynote events
- ✓ Access to Premium Members-only Slack workspace
- ✓ Monthly Tooling Up! sessions
At Skills Matter we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers. Beyond webinars, beyond virtual meetups, our aim is to provide a truly enriching online experience — the sort of community-building that was previously only available at in-person events for local audiences.
Premium Membership Benefits:
Free Access to Online Conferences
Premium Members on an Annual Plan enjoy 100% free access to all of our online conferences for themselves, and 30% off any additional tickets they'd like to purchase.
If you can't be there for the live event, as a Premium Member, you'll enjoy early-access to the conference SkillsCasts for 30 days.
Please Note: Free access to online conferences included in Annual plan. Co-hosted partner conferences are excluded.
Skills Matter eXchange Forums
Twice a year we’re bringing together 4 top technology experts for a unique “afternoon” of keynotes, provocative roundtables and fireside chats. Each Skills Matter eXchange Forum will tackle a subject that’s front of mind for today’s developers.
Our first eXchange Forum will take place in February. Stay tuned for more details.
90 Minutes with... Keynotes
90 Minutes with... provides the opportunity to learn from globally renowned experts, get your questions answered and network with other talented software professionals.
Each talk is 45 minutes followed by a short break and 30–45 minutes of facilitated Q&A with the speaker. A separate Breakout Room will also provide a space for side discussions.
Tooling Up! Sessions
Tooling Up! keeps you up to date with the latest tools and practices in our industry. Join us for these informative sessions and live demos from practitioners.
Tooling Up! sessions are engineer-led demos and are not vendor product pitches.

What is a Founding Member?
Without community we’re nothing. Community has always been at the heart of everything we do and we rely on users like you to help us in our mission to empower the international software development community. Until June 2021 our Premium Membership will be in its Development Phase — we’ll be launching new products and learning lessons along the way. During this time users who subscribe to a Premium Membership will be awarded a special Founding Member badge on their accounts — this will never be available again.
We hope you’ll join us on this journey.
