@weekly-updates: [August 23-27 ]
Our priority is the Global Hackathon Series this week. All hands are directed to ensure Hack Nodes and Hack participants have an awesome NEAR experience during the hackathon 27 Aug - Sep 12, 2021.
On a different front, The MarCom team is on a roll, Q3 OKRs mid-term review indicated that some of our OKRs are on track while others are at risk. There are now 4 teams in MarCom working in concert to drive initiatives for Q4. We are thrilled to have new team members joining the Marketing-Community team, is it therefore our collective effort that will make the new team members ready to hit the ground running!
