We just came out with this release and we’re excited. Lots of new features, lots of functionality, and we’ve hit a number of great milestones when it comes to contributors and size of the community. I have with me today Megan and Kavya from the Salt team. Can I ask you two to introduce yourselves?” – Thomas Hatch

We passed 3,000 total contributors to salt and hit our 100,000 commit to the project. Overall salt continues to be a massive community and we have so many people who are out in the wild using salt for so many different things and it’s been really exciting to see the contributions continue to roll in at a pace that continues to grow year over year” – Thomas Hatch
