One last reminder to take the AK Developers Survey (here)!
We need 34 more responses to hit our target of 125 responses. Anyone completing the survey by 12/15 will be entered to win a free JetBrains license.
November was a great month for the AK Dev alliance with two well-attended events. A special thanks to Jessica Austin for presenting on DevOps and Data Pipelines in the Last Frontier on what was the best attended Dev Alliance event to date. We would also like to thank Vincent Castro, Erik Talvi, Keith McCormick, Nigel Sharp, Dave Bechberger, and Jazon Burnell for taking part in the panel discussion as part of Startup Week.
As we move into December we are looking forward to taking some time off and relaxing with family and friends. However, we are also busy crunching the number on the Dev Survey as well as making plans for next year's activities. If you have any ideas or want to help make the AK Dev Alliance great then please contact Jeff Levin on Slack or firstname.lastname@example.org.
