The support has been unstoppable this last year! Even though our occupations are a priority, I sense your enthusiasm and warmth. Without a doubt we would have liked to be able to welcome more members, but those who are present have the commitment and willingness to support the entire community regardless of the language. You know that you have our full support and are a source of pride for all of us. My sincere congratulations Class of 2024!

@ahollifield @ammahend M02@rt37 @b.winter @RedNectar @David Ruess @dtibbe @Kasun Bandara @MHM Cisco World @bigevilbeard ... I have seen some of you rise to the spotlight and now reap the results of your efforts.

And to those who I have already had the opportunity to talk, share and hug (not as many as I would like), thank you for continuing here giving your best!

It's an honor to be counted among such smart and accomplished people. Congratulations everyone!
