Every week, we’ll share updates, anything upcoming, community-created content, and anything else we think you might find interesting. If we missed anything, feel free to add a comment or post it in the PixieBrix Slack Community.
First of all, I want to introduce myself, as you’ll see my face and name around here a lot more often. I’m Brittany Joiner, and I have been using PixieBrix for about a year to automate all sorts of things. I joined the team full-time last week as Head of Developer Relations, and I’m super excited to show you all what we’ve got going on, connect with more folks who enjoy building in PixieBrix and build some cool stuff together.
If you need anything, feel free to DM me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or say hello in the PixieBrix Slack Community!
