Hey Folks! Thanks for joining me for another community meeting. Let’s kick things off with a few updates from DevRel:

If you haven't already heard, our very own @Jeff Strauss co-hosts "How To Human" with Nichol and Sam every other Friday. If you missed the first show, that's ok. You can catch it on YouTube. It was a blast!
The next topic is Implicit Bias and it will air on Twitch tomorrow, Friday 2 Dec at 10am ET. Tune in to show support
