Toucan play that game
It’s the very first Roundup (woo!) and we’re excited about all of the things we have to share
So let’s start this one right and answer the question on everyone’s mind: “What’s this Roundup thing you’re talking about?”
Basically, Roundups are a bi-weekly update where we get to share what we’ve been up to and what we’re excited about at Lightdash
So every other Tuesday, we’ll post a new Roundup that you can find in the “Roundups” category.
If you’re more of an email kind of person, then you can sign up to our Newsletter (sign up is at the bottom of the page) and we’ll send you an email with a summary of the Roundup and a link to the post each time it comes out.
So now that the scene is set, let’s get into some exciting updates!
About two weeks ago, we decided that it was time to dip our toes in that sweet launch water and shared a public version of Lightdash on Show HN. We felt like we didn’t want a full-blown launch just yet, so we picked a channel that we thought would get a bit of action, but nothing too crazy.
We definitely weren’t expecting this amount of buzz, and when we talked about it after, we all said the same thing in different ways:
We were most excited about the fact that the community of people we were building this tool for were the people that were stoked about it.
So ya, our “small” launch was great, but we still have a lot of room to grow and want to keep everyone super excited about what we’re building!
We set up Discourse early last week and have been thinking a lot about how we want to keep folks involved in building a community and a product that helps everyone answer their data questions.
I actually thought so much about it, that I wrote a little blog post about why we want to build a community that you can check out here.
We’re planning to use Discourse as the primary tool to talk to our users/community and GitHub as the primary tool to plan our work/build the product. But, we’re keepin’ it hip and trendy, so we also have a Twitter account that you can follow. So follow us, star us, tweet at us - we’d love to hear from you
Thanks for checking out this week’s Roundup. Let us know if you have any questions or comments in the thread
