MonkTalks - technology, society, beer

A fan site dedicated to all the speakers and staff of Monktoberfest by Redmonk.

Monktoberfest 2018 was… well, it was kind of about a bunch of different life skills. Important life skills, like community, empathy, ethics, DevOps, how to scale beer, and how to fold a fitted sheet.
