Virtual Coffee Newsletter, April 2023

We're going into our 4th year! ๐Ÿ’

Hey friends!

March was a great month for our lightning talks, and now we're incredibly happy to be sharing what makes our community special as we move into the fourth year of Virtual Coffee.

๐Ÿ’ž Kindness and Gratitude

Spotlighting some of the kindness happening in our community.

"Grateful for VC lightning talks especially applications with chat gpt as a developer with prompt engineering skills [from] Matt McInnis, feelings friday session, VC pomodoro flow club sessions to get me and keep me in the state of flow at work, and my vyvanse + caffeine pill to wake me up this morning."


"Grateful for all of you and your trust in me."


"Grateful for VC and for my wife and cats and all kinds of stuff, like the idea of pants."


"Iโ€™m grateful for finally feeling a bit better again, even though this overall health situation is still super annoying and energy-consuming. Iโ€™m also super happy that Iโ€™ve finally joined the VC volunteer team, as that was one of my goals for 2023."

April Happenings

๐Ÿ’กMonthly Theme & Challenge: Month of Community Kindness!

As we work hard to make sure this community continues to be the special and close-knit group it has been, this challenge encourages our members to celebrate one of the things that continually makes this community so special: Kindness. Some of the ways we see this include: practicing gratitude, reaching out to support other members, mentoring, helping, giving honest and constructive feedback, and continuing to make Virtual Coffee a safe and supportive space.
