CMG Hotness, WVD FTW, and Some EDU Love


It’s been over a year since we last had tacos met as a group of professionals. I’m not going to lie, I taco cheated on all of you. With multiple tacos. I couldn’t go that long. No one should be asked to endure such prolonged abstinence. It’s taken me a while to work through my taco grief but it’s time that we come together and talk tech again. Virtually that is.

April 9 starting around 12:30 we’re going to host our first fully virtual event. Exact technical details to be determined but I’m excited about the speakers we’ve lined up.
