"Community" is a term often bandied about in tech circles, but what does it mean? Where is this community? What is Community's hit point max, magic rating, and XP to next level? Does it have special abilities? How can individuals best connect with, contribute to, and benefit from the greater technical community? And also what is the end goal? So many questions! I don't have all of the answers but I may have a few, so join us and let's share some community skillz.

This was a fabulous talk and it's great to have such excitement and enthusiasm at the end of the conference when everyone else is tired.

Brilliant. Your talk actually got me excited about developing deeper connectioalns within the community. It would be a great opening talk for any conference.

Fast paced, and entertaining. Gave me lots to think about as well, as I examine career and community changes I have before me.

This was not the direction I thought it was going to go and it was awesome. Great content, fantastically delivered. I hope to see it again.

It's taken me a couple of weeks to get the courage to enter this. Since the speaker is such a powerful person in the community, I wasn't sure I would have the nerve to do it.

I enjoyed the speaker's wrap up of the conference until about ten minutes in, when she took off her jacket and was wearing a "Resist" T-Shirt. I thought maybe I did not see it right, but that is what it said. From that point on, I felt uncomfortable she had turned a great conference into a hostile environment for me. I don't remember anything she said after she did that. I would have gotten up right then and walked out but I was afraid that Margaret might call me out.

I suppose that Twilio is OK with her alienating half the audience. I will say this for sure, if this speaker is involved in next year's event in any way, my team will not be back. We don't need to support events that aren't going to create a safe space for everyone.

One good thing did come out of this though. We were trying to decide whether to implement Twilio or another vendor. Twilio is so well liked that we had already decided. After discussing this event with my team, we decided to look at other vendors.
