I know that so far there have been many terrible things happening in 2020 and how our day to day is going has changed due to COVID. But with Thanksgiving coming up I believe it’s important to take a step back and give thanks for what we do have.
At RingCentral, we feel especially thankful for our customers, our partners, and our incredible developer community. As a part of our community, we are thankful for you and all that you do to drive RingCentral, technology, and communications forward.
As we look at not just the friendships formed over this year, we are incredibly thankful for a community that is so inclusive and supportive of each other. A community that writes articles and creates videos to share how they created apps or different ways they used RingCentral APIs so that others can replicate it and even customize it for themselves.
A community that helps other developers that are stuck and trying to figure out what they might have missed through our live chat and forums. It is truly inspiring seeing how much they do to help support each other and the community as a whole.
It is thanks to people like you that I was able to start playing around and learn to code. We have some wonderful leaders that really go above and beyond and I would be remiss to not call them out for all the time they’ve given to support the community.
Our community is the reason our team strives tirelessly to improve and provide new and revolutionary features. You’re the reason RingCentral has become one of the most awarded communication platform for developers over the last three years (including winning Best Developer Dashboard and being a finalist for Best Developer Documentation at this year’s DevPortal Awards!).
I also want to take a second to give an extra shout out to those in our Game Changers program, and 2020’s Game Changers (the highest tier in the program) — Anirban Sen, Eric Mann, Rito Salomone and Juan Villegas — thank you to for going above and beyond in helping others.
Thank you again for all you do, and for being part of the RingCentral Developers community. We know that together we can tackle anything that comes our way, and continue to improve the way people communicate during a time when communication seems more challenging than ever.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving, and a happy holiday season,
Tanja, Mike, and the RingCentral Developers team
