Hello Community, It's been awhile since a Community Newsletter has gone out, but no longer. There's been a changing of the guards at Dev Comm, but we are still here to support you and grow our community.
Let me take a moment to introduce myself. While relatively new at MarkLogic, I have a long history working with technology including development, architecture, administration, ops, and training, so I look forward to working with you, in whatever role you serve, to make your adoption of MarkLogic easier and maybe even fun. We want to hear from you about what works well and how we can better serve our community, so please don't hesitate to reach out<mailto:community-reque...@marklogic.com>. Dave Cassel has shifted to a role in the Engineering department, returning his focus to developing software. He remains active on Stack Overflow and will continue to participate in MarkLogic World and Meetups when he can. On that note, save the date for MarkLogic World 2018<https://www.marklogic.com/world/>, May 7-10 in San Francisco, California! I hope to see you all there, networking in the Developer Lounge.
