    What's up, everyone!

    Last Friday, we've hosted our first-ever online Open Ears Forum, via video conference, and the result exceeded our expectations. We met and talked with 23 Community members spanning 4 continents, something never possible before with our previous OEFs.

    Being the first time hosting this OEF format, I must admit we were a bit nervous when we first turned on our cameras, but it went smoothly and everyone got involved in the discussion rather quickly. The second round was under a more relaxed atmosphere, with members interacting more with each other, almost like friends talking tech in a bar over a few drinks. You almost didn't need us there. :D

    We would like to thank @razzor228 @kannaa_kr @FlixbusLennart @Vivek2368 @SWAPPYONE @sia_0 @manuel19 @shoghi07 @scotty137 @Dresa91 @Gio567full @Bhaveee @Roshan Rajesh @doctorparadox @brent.naidoo @Char7simons @OscarOP @itssandeepd @huxley1t @Vansh99 @matthu.2711 @Dave1482 @Its.Leandroo for participating in this experience with us. All of you have a big role in making our first online OEF a success!



    As we normally do with OEFs, We were planning to share some feedback and commitments regarding what was discussed, but the topic in question is still under wraps. As a result, we are instead following up on the feedback obtained from this online event, and find ways to implement it in the future. Still, we can't wait for the day to show the final result of this online OEF.

    Across the two online sessions, we received over 150 single bits of feedback and suggestions, from UI/UX, to ways of improving upcoming features. Half of them are already being analyzed and considered by the relevant product teams.

    As a result, we've redoubled our conviction that online OEFs are a great alternative for their offline counterpart, especially in these times of physical distancing. As such, we will continue hosting them and want your feedback on which topics you'd like to see discussed in the future.

    Last but not least, I'd like to share with you some behind the scenes photos from this event.

    Cool, it's a nice alternative to face to face meetings.
    Curious to see the outcome being applied to future product/software development.

    It is known that it will be released in Q2. You don't have to ask every day.

    And you think that will speed things up?
    In a public forum, without Dev Team?

    Nice! I was a bit too late to enter this, but I'd love to join one of these in the future. Especially considering the physical ones never came close to me, this is a great way to get different perspectives.
