Today is International Women’s Day, and this year the theme is #EmbraceEquity - which means creating an equitable environment. An equitable work environment means understanding that everyone, regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, background, or resources, brings strength to the workforce and that opportunities should be given to them based on their individual needs. For Pulumi, it means a work environment where everyone can share ideas and respect them even when disagreeing.
What is user experience, or UX? There are plenty of answers depending on who you ask. At the core, UX is about asking questions and solving problems.
Pulumi’s hackathon tradition continued in the last weeks of 2021 with our 2021 December hackathon. For one solid week, we had teams from across the company focus on improvements across the Pulumi ecosystem, and we brought in people from outside the engineering org to get perspectives on different needs. While there were some projects that were focused on internal work, there were still quite a few open-source projects that we can talk about publicly.
