The Week of Hoffman

It was the week of Kevin Hoffman. Kevin’s a new addition to the Pony community. Saturday before last he contacted us on Twitter and it’s been a whirlwind eight days since. Three blog posts written, an RFC opened, and a couple pull requests is a heck of a first week. Welcome to the community Kevin!

My First Pony

This past week, we launched what we hope is a regular series of blog posts on from members of the community. “My First Pony” will feature posts from community members about their early experiences using Pony. Ideally, written “in the moment”.

The only caveat for “My First Pony” is that we ask you keep things positive. No talking down on other languages and tools. We’re here to celebrate Pony and discuss its flaws. We can do that without running down other languages. We’re building an upbeat, welcoming, positive community and we want “My First Pony” to reflect that spirit.
