Howdy friend,

Our community is growing! Welcome to all of the new folks who signed up this week — it's great to have you with us.

Since there are so many new people here, I'd like to take this time to remind everyone that I've made previous versions of the newsletter available on the site. My goal is to eventually make this page searchable so you can go back through the archives and find content relevant to your needs. I should have that ready in a couple of months, so stay tuned.

As always, if you need anything, feel free to shoot me an email or a DM on Twitter. Have a great weekend — see you back here next week.

High fives,

Matt Downey
