Weekly Wrap Up

This week’s blog post was brought to you by Drew and is the first installment of a series of posts about ReactJS. If you haven’t read it, you should!


The first BeYou. took place on Wednesday and was awesome. What will happen in upcoming classes? Stay tuned!

We’re Just Going to Take a Moment and Bōwst

The About Page is live and looks AWESOME thanks to the combined efforts of Marcus and Heather. We will continue to add content, but if you haven’t looked at it yet, you totally should.

Bōwst About Town

Just a reminder that Drew(pal) Trafton (how have I never made that joke before?) is going to be presenting on precision theming in Drupal next week! It’s in Cambridge, it’s on Thursday the 21st, it’s going to be awesome.

Bot Thought

This week, The Zuckerberg announced that he thinks that bots are the future of customer service. However, not everyone agrees. What’s the BOT-tom line here? I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens!

The State of 8 (Drupal 8, That Is)

The good folks behind Drupal are looking for input regarding Drupal. and have issued a product management survey. Read more about it here and take the survey here.

Space: The Final Frontier?

Doc (that would be Marcus Freeman) brought this to our attention this morning. Stephen Hawking, The Zuckerberg, AND a Russian billionaire? Innnnteresting.

Bōwst Loves SOAR

Our own Jamie and Marcus are working to help Save One Animal Rescue (SOAR) raise some badly needed funds — Jamie volunteers with them on the regular and Marcus designed some fabulous collection containers for them (like the one above). BIG thanks to all of our other staff members who have donated to SOAR as well — you are awesome and the dogs and cats are thankful for you. Check out SOAR and help the kitties (and pups)!
