Earlier this month, we gathered all our developers from around the world in Herzliya, Israel, beside the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. We spent an entire week sharing our latest work with our peers, learning from each other in intensive sessions, and bonding together by forming into teams for a series of fun activities. The days were intensive but very interesting and meaningful to all.
