For the chat, let’s talk about this approach. Questions, comments, ideas? Feel free to bring them up, you can start with commenting here.

Let’s also discuss this wonderful post by Reid Peifer about the editor content creation. What are the best pieces we can learn from?

It all goes down today, Wednesday, 8 February 2017, 19:00 CET! 🎉
