Hi all,

Great to see guys are up and running on this.

So just starting up some traction for discussions on this list. I think it
would be great if we could start off with bi-weekly meetups and share on
stuff we are doing and planning to do and maybe leverage from each other.

I settled on bi-weekly because it isn't too much or too little though if
you have any other thoughts, do share :)

Please fill in this Doodle [1] to settle on a day and time for the
meetings. *Ignore the specific dates* as the meetups will be recurring
after every two weeks.

cheers,
Alex
