Dot All 2021: State of Craft + State of Craft Commerce Videos Now Public
Dot All happened on the internet, and we just made two videos public: Brandon’s State of Craft and Luke’s State of Craft Commerce. (Videos from all the talks are still available to ticket holders.)
Ryan Irelan shared his notes throughout, and Masashi Yanagiya posted commentary in Japanese for day one and day two.

We look forward to seeing you in person next year.
