What we're up to in July: Demoing in Public ✨


Hey friends!

June was great for learning in public and we're carrying that energy into July by demoing all the amazing things we've done!


💞 Community Kindness

Spotlighting some of the kindness happening in our community.

"Huggggeeee thank you to Mike Rogers today, whose package of British treats kept me full during an intensely packed day."

Bekah

"Grateful to Andrew for supporting me on hosting the building-in-public standups. Thank you!"

Vanessa

"Grateful for Kirk, Abbey and Justin helping me in the standup yesterday. And Abbey for going the extra mile by having everyone help me figure things out."

June Recap

July Happenings

💡 Monthly Theme & Challenge: Month of Demos!

This month we're all about demoing in public. The idea is to learn to communicate around a project as you demo it, show the finished product or parts, gain confidence, and learn to be proud of any progress made. We'll be weekly check-ins with designated Demo Days where folks can share!

🎙️ Podcasts

We successfully finished season 2 of the podcast!

🥪 Brownbags and Workshops

These are members-only events that last for 45 - 90 minutes.

Some of our member posts we loved in June

Slack Love

"I just want to say that I'm so thankful to know so many amazing people here. Thank you for being awesome and caring and patient, and for helping me to grow."

Bekah

"I’m grateful for VC and a safe place to share without fear. Thankful for my new job and new teammates. Because of VC, I now ask icebreaker questions at our monthly lunches which makes things less awkward. (They didn't seem to do lunches together much before I started)"

Kenny

"I am grateful that I decided to finally join VC! It has seriously helped my motivation."
