Happy gatherings: Getting the community together 
August, as a word, means illustrious, esteemed, honorable, and celebrated. So it's fitting that it leads into such an event-filled month, where communities are getting together again after a season of away-ness. We'll be at quite a few events across the next month, so whether you're online or in-person in Boston, the Bay Area, or Raleigh, we hope to host you. 

With great affection, 
Your Uncommon community team
