My name is Mike Hostetler and I'm the founder & CEO of appendTo (http://appendto.com). We are a software consultancy that specializes in HTML5 and cutting edge web technologies (jQuery, Responsive Web Design, Node.js, etc).

We founded the company 4 years ago as a 100% virtual workplace and have bootstrapped our way to explosive growth.  Along the way, we've been privileged to work with some amazing and progressive organizations that have accepted our completely virtual work environment.

During an internal strategic review earlier this year we identified that our work style was one of our cornerstones of success and starting in January I am shifting my role to developing that part of our company.  

We've hacked work and have realized some success and now we want to share that with others.  I'm excited to be a part of this group and hope I can share that with you all here.

Please let me know if there's any way I can help what you're doing!

Join Sails.js creator Mike McNeil in the first Sails.js Open Digital Forum!
 
Hey All,

Thanks for being a part of the Sails.js community. This Friday, July 25th at 11:00 a.m CST/CDT we are going to host an open digital forum/hangout with Mike McNeil. Some of the core members of the team may drop in as well. This is a chance to ask questions and gather information in preparation for the new release.

The plan is to make this a regular gig and open it up to the Sails Community at large but this first forum will only be announced on the Google Group. 

We will post detailed information and links for logging on to the Hangout and how to submit questions in a subsequent email but for now, mark your calendar and help us start something new to support the community.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Mike McNeil. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
