IGEL Community Year-in-Review & Happy 2021!
2020 is over, and what a year it was! Not what we had expected, that is for sure. I hope this blog post finds you and yours well, prosperous, and excited about the new year. I hope your family and friends are healthy. I hope the best for you! 2020 sure was a drag.
Every negative has a positive, and for the IGEL Community, COVID gave us the time to truly build it up, better interact with all of you, and accomplish many of the tasks sitting on the backburner. It was indeed a record-setting year for us! I could not be prouder of the many fine folks who have made 2020 such a success. So many great people, from many different companies and countries! Together we found a place to gather and grow. For this alone made my year! I thank you!
That being said, I would like to take a moment to share just a few of the many accomplishments and statistics from 2020 with you!
We added 2,655 new members for a total of 5,347! Amazing!
Together we posted 186,258 messages!
In May, we rollout out of IGEL Community monthly Meetups and Tech Deep-Dive Webinars and averaged over 130 folks per event!
We finally rolled out our long-anticipated IGEL Community Tech Monthly, our newsletter sharing only the top technology resources from the prior month! What's new, recorded tech videos and webinars, blog articles, KB articles, community archives, and much more!
We launched the IGEL Community Technical Partners Program to allow IGEL's technical partners to join the IGEL Community. Now our members can interact with, learn from, and stay up to date with the solutions that extend the IGEL software stack! In 2021 we will be adding even more. Stay tuned.
Plus, so much more!
I can go on about the many new benefits of being a member of the IGEL Community, but I will leave that to find out on your own. If you are already a member, you know, and if not, please join us today!
Our mission has always been a simple one, to provide you with an exceptional experience that leaves you inspired, highly educated, and with a sense of being a part of the IGEL family!
Thank you all for a fantastic 2020! Together we are better, and together we made 2020 not so much of a drag! 2021 is going to be GREAT. I can feel it in my bones!
See you on the inside! If you are not already a member, please join today!
Happy New Year to you and yours!
