What do you hope to achieve this week?

One of the things I really appreciate about this community is the varied levels of the content and discussions that take place.

We have community members across all stages of their careers who are sharing articles and guides for readers at all levels. It makes for a thrilling blend of content that informs and inspires!

Thank you to everyone who shares their insights and high-level ideas, or takes the time to write up tutorials and overviews of concepts that they found useful when they were starting out.

I want to give a special thanks to the people asking questions and those taking the time to answer them:
A welcoming community for DevOps practitioners of all levels needs us to ask the questions we don't yet know the answers to - and to explain how we learned to answer the ones we do.

A warm welcome 👋

Thank you @Ella for the mention.

Lately I was thinking about this and I have a suggestion its for the benefit of the community.

What is the plan for blink team in order to increase our reach on twitter? Other platforms like hash node and (I know they are very old) but their major reads and awareness for the author's article is contributed from twitter.

Is there any plan to maximise ops community reach on twitter?

Hi @jatin, a good question! Even with the recent chaos, we're continually growing the Ops Community account on Twitter and trying to gain a bigger following there so we can showcase community articles to more people. It takes time, but as we get more and more awesome Ops people posting articles, we'll attract a larger audience. If you have any suggestions, let us know.

Thank you @patrick_londa. I do understand it takes time, its not a one day or few months job.

I do have a suggestion. Since is sort of our brother like in the platform infra per se. Is it possible to collaborate with them ( hash node, etc) in the way that they can help ops community posts by retweeting or sharing with their audience so that their audience are ware of clouds community interest of course in a way where there is no conflict of interest.

Looking forward to hearing how @patrick_londa and @johnson_brad are getting on in Tel Aviv.

Speaking of work trips, did you get any downtime to enjoy Kalahari @lnxchk or did CodeMash have you hacking the entire time?

Thank you @ellativity for the mention.

Looking forward to share more informational contents and learn something I have no clue about from the Ops community members 😉
