A few items before we get started:
🎉 We hit 2,000 members on Botmakers.org! 🎉
Well, we’re actually at 2,030 now, but Stefan and I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone in the Slack, sharing their ideas and helping other botmakers. It’s been a ton of fun, so if you haven’t visited lately make sure you log in and say hi! I’m super proud of this community.
Secondly, thanks to everyone who sent in their bots, news articles, and event info for the newsletter this week! I put out the call, and you responded. I love having this be a collaborative effort, so reply back to this email with whatever you’d like to share!
Finally, a reminder that we’re streaming out first ever botmaking workshop! RSVP here for the YouTube Live stream.
