Coming out of the gates of SugarCon and the SugarUNCon, I saw lots of enthusiasm about SugarCRM and the future direction of the product and company. I think one of the biggest reasons for this was the “openness” culture we have been embracing recently, giving all of our community members a chance to interact more closely with our technical teams and in some cases even gain insight and contribute input into our future roadmap. And as we keep this spirit of “openness” growing, we need to be sure that we keep the conversation going and continue to provide avenues for communication between you the community and us.
While the forums, the IRC channel, and this wonderful blog you are now reading are a few great ways to keep the interaction going, sometimes these avenues as a bit too passive and getting everyone together at the same time can be a challenge. To help with this, we are launching monthly webinar sessions that anyone in the Sugar Community can join in on to hear about what’s coming up with SugarCRM and have your chance to ask questions about what’s going on with Sugar.
We’ll be using WebEx to host the meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 15:00 GMT ( 11:00am US Eastern Time, 8:00 US Pacific Time ). The join the meeting, simply go to https://sugarcrm.webex.com/sugarcrm/j.php?ED=152787562&UID=492952802&RT=MiMxMQ%3D%3D to launch the webcast. You’ll be able to hear the meeting over your computer or you can call in to the number provided. And for those of you in a timezone where this time to meet is not very convenient, we will be providing recording of each month’s meeting afterwards.
Thanks everyone for your continued support and I look forward to the whole community coming together.
