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

First and foremost, our very own @Jeff Strauss will be hosting a new show called "How To Human" with Sam and Nichol from other business units in Progress. Let’s show them some support and tune in to their first show tomorrow at 10am ET on Twitch

Next, we’ve finally fixed the link to join the Community Slack! Now you can join from Join the Chef Community on Slack | Chef Community and you won’t have to use a Progress email to do so! Yaaay!!!

Lastly, our Community Advisory Council (CAC) meeting will take place at 1pm ET today! The focus today will be on Community Summits. So grab a drink and some snacks and join us on Zoom after this meeting. Here’s the link: Launch Meeting - Zoom
