Kiah Tolliver shared

Just two updates from DevRel this week:

  1. We will be collaborating with the Telerik team here at Progress to do a Thankmas stream. The idea is to go live and engage our respective communities with the intention of fundraising for charity. We invite you to tune in on our YouTube and Twitch accounts to root us on as we fundraise for charity.
  2. If you're doing something cool with Chef that'd you'd like to show off and share with the community, we'd love to have you on our live stream! Ping @damacus or me if you'd like to learn more.
