This week our team has been churning out additional admin and IT-related content to better connect with our users and friends in admin roles.
We're also aiming to make this a learning opportunity on our end.
Beyond more conversation with our admin users, this week we've been sitting in on admin Twitter chats and absorbing as much as possible. So far it's been crazy informative and something we'll likely continue doing each week.
Until then, we grabbed some samples from the chats we've watched and learned from. Highly recommend checking these out if you're an admin or just want to see, learn, and feel what's happening from the admin perspective across the country. Enjoy.
