Community Updates: Praise be! 📣🌏️🌎️🌍️

This past week we overhauled the Slack. The old longer channel descriptions were replaced by shorter minimalist names and we added two new channels: #praise & #wins

Today’s highlight is #praise, the idea is simple: if you’ve had someone positively impact you, share the love! Mention them and how they've helped you.

Everyone loves to be recognized, and showing gratitude is doubly beneficial. If someone has helped you out lately in the community spread the love and let them know.
