I truly hope you’re all doing well and are staying safe. This is a difficult time for many and I’m proud to say that we at MongoDB are working hard to help those hardest hit and also to empower those fighting the virus. The Covid-19 Help Project is still accepting applications. If you’re interested check out the blog post.
I also want to let you know that we have so many ways we can help get the message out about your projects, companies and brands - but we rarely get the opportunity to do it… I know everyone is so busy… but I’d love to help you generate some awareness for your projects.
I’m preparing a short survey to get feedback from Startups and Developers. It will also have an invitation to participate in some community activities such as blogging, videos, podcast appearances, AMA’s, Twitch Live coding, Speaking at a virtual event. I encourage you to answer YES to the question about participating in promotional activities for your brand and project. This will enable me to get the ball rolling on some these great activities.
In the meantime - a question for you - would any of you actually participate in a Twitch Live Coding Session? I did one with @nraboy and had a blast. I think it might be cool to spotlight a startup developer working on something cool. Or, would you prefer to do a brief Startup Spotlight Zoom session where we chat about your project and let the world know about it. These are just a couple of the options available - let me know what you would find most valuable.
Thank you and please be safe and stay well.
