Thank you - all 200k of you - for being a part of the Microsoft Teams space here in the Microsoft Technical Community. The world has changed quite a bit over the last year and Teams has played a significant part in allowing us to stay connected both personally and professionally. Many people experienced virtual meetings for the first time this year and many conducted their business 100% online for the first time, ever. The pace in which the world went virtual was quick and change management processes were challenged for many.

 

Those of you in this space challenged our engineering team to shift gears to accomplish what was important to you in these changing times, you kept your own organizations up to date and kept things running, but most importantly - you supported one another, you leaned on one another, and you reached out when you needed community most. It's been an exciting 3+ years watching this community grow but I can honestly say that seeing a 600% increase in activity these past few months and the rate at which you came together to join the Teams engineering team to help one another was incredible.

 

Thank you for being here. Thank you for providing input and sharing stories and explaining your scenarios so we can create a product that enables you to do your best collaboration. Thank you for contributing to the Microsoft Teams community. 

 

On behalf of Microsoft Teams Engineering, Cheers to all 200k of you! Here's to a safe, healthy, productive 2021.  #CommunityRocks

@PeterRising - The community could not be what it is without all of you. Maybe my most favorite thing about this space is seeing the friendships forged through shared passion of the technology and making it better. Thanks for being a part of it!
