Whew, life really happened in the past week (more on all of that soon)! So I'm really behind but the recap is here nonetheless — better late than never, right?
We're at 17 episodes of The Consumer Show, y'all! And the Switchyards team apparently didn't think they were doing enough, so they've created a new resource called Switchyards Design & Development, they started a new tradition of Switchyards Field Day (thanks to Tallia Deljou for organizing all the crazy teams!), they resuscitated Friends of Switchyards, and Michael Tavani says there's more to come so keep an eye out!
