Screenly Newsletter November 2019

One of Screenly's developers announcing digital signage product updates to an audience.

How are we almost midway through the fourth quarter again? The months have been flying! The Screenly team has had an exciting past few months, and we’d like to share some details on our progress!

We’re back from Screenly Summit 2019!

The Screenly team attended the annual Screenly Summit this October in beautiful Lisbon, Portugal. Almost all of the team could make it, and the team had a great time together. We spent a week living and working together, and we are all excited about the year ahead.

Screenly is a fully remote team, and we typically only see each other on video calls. For remote teams, an annual summit meeting can be extremely valuable, as it allows the team to interact face-to-face in an informal setting. During Screenly Summit 2019, our team grew closer together, and we will continue into the upcoming year as a stronger and more collaborative unit.
