Our completely new discussions area gained a lot of traction this week and people were debating on a variety of issues. This is exactly why we build the whole discussions -feature, there’s a lot to talk about! It was great to see many new companies and ideas also being promoted on the forum, not to mention the good advice and tips the world is full of. If you’re not actively following the discussions, I sincerely invite you to do so.
