Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in Blogs I Love | One Comment

I first met Chris Matts at the XP2010 conference in Trondheim. In 2011, he was one of the first awesome coaches of the week. Since then, we’ve met at multiple conferences and have shared a deep learning journey together. His blog is the first I’m featuring on my website, with the intention to grow this into an inspiring list of learning opportunities.
