Gatsby Days Reconfigured
With all the momentous events of recent weeks, we decided -- after a lot of discussion and thought -- to reconfigure this month’s planned Gatsby Days. Now is not the right time to take attention and space away from the Black Lives Matter movement. Transforming Gatsby Days from a live event into a video and blog content series allows us to share all the amazing speakers and learning opportunities of the live event in a way that the community can access as the time is right for each of us. Today’s post is the first in the series, presenting all the product and program announcements that we had planned for the original online event.

Gatsby Community Events and COVID-19
Gatsby is all about our amazing community, but we are also all about safety. So we are asking most sincerely: If there's an in-person Gatsby community meetup on your calendar, please reschedule or figure out a way to hold it remotely. Here are some ways we are doing that ourselves.
