Hi Pantheon community members! Hope everyone’s having a great week so far. Today, I’m celebrating Finn’s (my pet corgi) second birthday, so I of course have to share a pic of him here (in his birthday pajamas, which are a little too small now that he’s full grown).
For those of you who are new here: Work Out Loud is a weekly opportunity to share what we’re working on, who we’re meeting with, and what we’re doing in our free time. There are no rules here—share whatever you’d like!
Welcome New Members!
Welcome to our newest community members: @TanyaB, @jigama, @tmRoth, @ramkyk, @Ivan, @KenWatts, and @mcurran. We’re so excited to have you here! You’re cordially invited to participate in our Work Out Loud thread, this week and every week. Let us know where in the world you are!
This week, I am…
Sharing post-event updates and news on the 2021 Gift of Open Source. If you missed the post-event announcement, you can check it out here to see a list of everyone who participated, the reach/impact of the event, and more!
Preparing to start back up some of our community initiatives, including WebOps Wednesday Ask Me Anything (AMA) threads. Stay tuned!
Continuing to conduct research on B2B community advocacy programs and looking at ways we can improve the experience for our Heroes Advocacy Program members. And in case you weren’t aware of the program, our Heroes Advocacy Program focuses on supporting and enabling our most active community members who willingly devote their time to give back to open source projects on and off the Pantheon platform. If you truly share the Pantheon mission to make the open web a better place, consider applying to be a Hero.
What I am Most Excited About…
I’m planning on celebrating Finn’s birthday all week, which includes taking him to a local dog bakery and toy store soon to get him some goodies and let him pick out a toy. More pics to come!
I’m beyond excited to start running some of Pantheon’s community programs. We’ll share more updates about these soon, but I look forward to connecting with and getting to know each of you more in the weeks to come!
