Introductions Thread - New to the community? Start here!
Hi all, if you've joined recently you may have seen a welcome message from me in your inbox but I figured a great way to get to know folks here would be an intro thread. As we share Solace related knowledge and learn from each other, let's get to know each other!
Name or handle
(only share what you're comfortable with of course)
Where in the world is...
I'm in Ottawa, Canada. Right now I'm working from home but normally I'm at Solace's headquarters here in Ottawa.
I'm currently the Developer Content and Community Manager here at Solace. My job is to help make this community a thriving place where you can find other people who are as passionate, interested, and curious about Solace, PubSub+, Event Portal, and really anything related to event driven architecture.
Tell us about the fun story about your experience with Solace
For me it's not directly related to Solace software or the broker, but starting a new job in the midst of a pandemic. I had worked remotely before, but it was temporary (six months) and with a team of people that I already knew quite well and had great rapport with. I started with Solace in May when everything was pretty much shut down here in Ottawa. So I didn't get to meet any of my coworkers in person until last week. We just had restaurant outdoor patios open recently so I was able to join @hong and @Tamimi for some drinks and food and finally see them in real life! It was a great moment to get to know them even better, plus the beer tasted really good!
