I’m thrilled to announce the IGEL Community have achieved the 1000-member mark in just 317 days (ten months). This is a fantastic number, and I thank you all for being a part of it! 1000 reasons to smile today!
Of course, I must thank every one of you for being such a massive part of the IGEL Community! Our goal was to create a place where we can all exchange knowledge, network and share in our love for IGEL technologies. I think we have accomplished this task, but we are not slowing down. On the contrary, we are just getting started!
I must also thank a few key IGEL employees who have given their spare time, in-depth knowledge and passion for helping: Adam Woydziak, Christian Drieling, Daniel Weinert, Fredrik Brattstig, René Recker, and Sebastien Perusat! Of course, our bosses, Simon Richards, and Jed Ayres who have supported the crazy idea of ‘community,’ though it was not crazy to them. All are IGEL’s secret sauce.
