It's time for the Community Newsletter! :dynatrace:


Welcome to August! Even though the holiday season is in full swing, we're not slowing down with our busy plans and bringing you numerous novelties and updates throughout the Community. We're happy to share the most important of them with you right here, right now. Grab your coffee, sit comfortably and check out some statistics, highlights and things to be looking forward 👀 


📈 Dynatrace Community highlights






Over the previous month we were mainly engaged in planning, measuring and shaping the new features of the Dynatrace Community that were on the agenda, the largest one being the user groups feature. Curious about what else we've been working on? Check out the July's most important highlights!



👉 User groups are finally here! Things went even better than anticipated, and with the invaluable support of our users we managed to launch not one group, as initially planned, but two! Check out the German and Portuguese user groups.


👉 We've hosted another Community AMA Session that is now a reoccurring monthly event you can freely participate in. Next event's date is right there 👈


👉 Other fresh Community's feature, Events and webinars, is full of life now! Explore all of them in the dedicated space and especially - don't forget to explore Dynatrace INNOVATE!

🎵 The July challenge overview


July is a month of summer trips, long bike journeys and, in general, dozens of opportunities to listen to music. Everyone's got their own taste, and we though it would be fun to ask the Community members to build a large Summer Playlist together. A track perfect for a morning jog? Share it! For work? For making everyday commuting smoother? Or simply those you can't get enough of? We would love to hear them all!


Curious of already shared tracks? Take a look at the "Community DJ Challenge"!
