    Hey everyone!

    As time passes and we learn new things, one can’t help but look back on the path they’ve taken. This was never more so the case than the last few weeks. As one chapter closes, another begins so to speak. Last week a good friend of mine @Ryan Fenwick, gave a look back at what the last 7 years have been like for OnePlus in the Tairan building, and the hope we have for the future as HQ moved into Chunsun.

    I remember those days I spent in Shenzhen back when I first came to work in HQ fondly, oftentimes it’s where we spent much of our time off of work too. So many late nights gaming on the overhead projector in the brainstorm room, sitting in the canteen together for dinner, or drinking and watching movies at our desks. The global and community teams always have been such tight-knit groups, we worked hard and we played hard. It’s amazing what we were able to create with so very few resources. Now, I can’t wait to see what we can do with some real power behind us!

    @Daniel D. recently put up a post about the spaces that will become the new hub of community creation, the Brainstorm Room v2. Check out his post and let him know what you think!

    @Elyn Lu just helped us all learn a bit more about portraits shots by sharing her talks with our friend Gareth Pon during the latest Shot on Oneplus Community Workshop. They share with us point-to-point directions on how to take your best Single focus object photos to the next level! Take a read and get ready to enter your best shot in this months Shot on OnePlus contest.

    Fan gatherings are back in North America! Last weekend we had our very first gathering in a long time in Austin TX. As @Antonio_Luis can tell you, it went off without a hitch! The community members that came were shown around Austin for a photo walk hosted by our staff members, spent some time talking shop, and then to top it all off, taken out to dinner at a local BBQ spot!

    We can’t wait to see how the next gathering goes as we tour the California coast near Santa Cruz from the 27-29th of September. Follow my post here to make sure you enter to win a spot to come! (We’ll be announcing an East Coast meetup very soon!)

    Other cool things going on in the forums?

    Have a great rest of the weekend all, I hope you all get to spend it doing something you love!

    Thanks for the weekly update, @Adam Krisko many were wondering why this WU was taking so long. :D

    I'm curious about the font used in the header, are you hinting towards something or am I reading too much into it?

    Noticed the font as well, but I doubt it.

    Looks like Tairan was much more than just an office...must be sad for the team in HQ, experiencing the loss of all open space and gardens and shifting to a glass covered bullet shaped building instead...

    Have a great week everyone!

    You are reading too much into it. It's a mistake by me.

    Ah! No worries, I was expecting it to be a hint as the title for this WU is “A new Chapter” :p

    You too Adam, if you weren't so far away I would have come over, help you clean up after the storm.

    What are you doing? o_O

    You could have trolled him silly, send him on a wild goose chase :rolleyes:
