Happy New Year Virtual Coffee family!

Hey friends!

We had a ton of fun in December doing some non coding activities (especially fiber arts) but now we're ready to start learning again!

💞 Community Kindness

Spotlighting some of the kindness happening in our community.

"So grateful for this community. I know I have been a lot less active in slack since I changed jobs but I really appreciate those who have checked in on me, and for remembering me when I do manage to pop on to a coffee! also grateful for a job that allows for work life balance and the health of my family and myself."


"I'm super grateful to have found this community! You are all the best!"


"I'm grateful for this community, the friendships that have deepened here, the support I've received. For my family, having quality time to spend with them, and for having what I need to take care of them."
