Designer Hangout Weekly

Happy Thursday, and welcome to all of our new members!

I'm excited to announce that we have our first community partners, Balsamiq and O'Reilly Media. Each partner has their own dedicated channel in the community where you can read their latest content, and reach out to anyone on the team with any questions or ideas.

You might be thinking, "Hey, why's this good for me?"

  • You'll have a direct line to the partner. So if you have a new idea for Balsamiq, you will be heard right inside our community, and you can have a meaningful conversation instead of being limited to 140 characters.
  • You get content when it goes live on their blogs. You may even get stuff before it's posted anywhere else.
  • You can shape the future of the partner's products and offerings.
  • You can connect with design influencers. So if you want to speak to an O'Reilly author like Laura Klein, Simon King, Dan Brown, or Tom Greever, you can find them in the partner channel.
  • Completely optional: you can jump in and out whenever you like.
