Engineering Updates

This week I conducted more customer interviews to demonstrate the new user interface work-in-progress and get feedback that can be fed into the UX team and improve and enhance the work we’re doing before we launch it (soon!!).

In addition to the internal teams all working hard on some new features and clusters we are looking forward to releasing, we had a few bumps to the Gentoo stacks, which you can read all about here.
