    Hi everyone!

    How are you this week? This week was my turn to write the weekly update AND also my turn to attend an internal project management training program called PMC. These past two days, I somehow managed to finish the 22KM Orientation Hike and 13 KM of canoeing. Getting everything done for launch and attending this training was indeed a challenge but yea fun… anyway, I'll get back on topic XD

    First of all, we're getting more and more excited since we're going to meet some of you guys in person at our London and Mumbai launch events! Have you received our special gift for this launch?

    Are you all set? Also this week, we partnered with Google who officially announced the Android P Beta for the OnePlus 6 at the Google I/O event. The software will be cooked up for you in the upcoming week, so stay tuned!

    Our community has our own stylish way to celebrate the launch event. Since word games are always our community members’ favorite, we’ve added the Countdown Madness contest into the party, alongside with the OnePlus 6 Launch Tabloid told by Chris dB and Ruby G. Don’t forget to check out these threads and join in on the conversation.

    All the features you experience on our phones are the result of countless efforts behind the scenes. There are so many untold stories. When we find something worthwhile, we like to share how we do things with our community. Do you know what are the design principles behind categorized tags in App Drawer? Check out this nice piece of content from @Gary C. of our software team.

    Alright, this is my first Weekly Update, let’s keep it simple before I wear out. Before I leave, let us toast to a little milestone we’ve made together: "BarONE: Delirio oltre lo spam" surpassed 30,000 pages yesterday! (lol you guys are the best)

    I will be catching a flight to London later today, so see you next week for the launch and as always, in our community.

    Never Settle.

    Suggestion - If possible, add a OOS development part in every weekly update. So here we can get to know what's cooking for us.
    EDIT - It would make weekly update 100 times more interesting.
    EDIT 2 - No use, cupcakes will destroy the forum with useless and redundant threads then.

    While I'd love to have this as well, it's probably supposed to be kept a secret :(

    But few things, even one line, about it can keep us happy. Not the detailed secrets but few minor updates are a no harm. (y)
