There’s something about the Ask Me Anything (AMA) format that offers an excellent opportunity to learn about someone in the community. And we learn so much! I was reminded of the AMA’s at last year’s Test.bash(); — with Simon, Marie, Julia, and Vernon.
And Test.bash(); is back again next month, on 28th October. Check out the recently launched schedule and register with a Pro membership or purchase a ticket.
Have a good week!
Simon, CommunityBoss 😃
