Bruno Talks With

By Bruno Raljic
I had a chance to work on my own product and on that journey I met a lot of wonderful people. Now I'm inviting them to be my guests. Bruno Talks With is a "semi-scripted casual chat". We share our experience and knowledge, no matter how poor or solid it is.

You might be interested in the talk if you are building a product or you want to start building it. You'll see other people have similar problems, struggles and dilemmas.
