🔜 What's to look forward to?



October usually brings colder and darker days... Yet, it totally doesn't reflect our schedule for the upcoming month, which is full of hot updates! Take a look at what you can expect and make sure you're up to date with all the novelties!


👉 Dynatrace Community refreshment!


As you might've noticed, Dynatrace is bringing its visual identity to the next level -- drifting away from lines and boxy curves toward the more futuristic waves, smooth color mixtures, and fresh shapes. Following the product website update introduced last summer, now it's time to refresh the Dynatrace Community. Brace yourselves - new visual identification is coming, hopefully in the last week of October!


👉 New exciting Community Challenge - OCTOBER 12, 2022


We're sticking to the more technical and product-oriented formula of the Community Challenge you've seen last month. Stay tuned for the newest edition which is coming next week - you'll love this one! 😎


👉 New Community Q&A Session - OCTOBER 18 & OCTOBER 19, 2022


Maybe you are not sure about some principles that product ideas are based on? Would you like to know how status changes work? Or maybe how ideas are selected during the reviews done by Product Managers? Make sure to join us in the upcoming Community Q&A Session dedicated to Product Ideas - here for EMEA, LATAM, and NORAM regions, and here for the APAC region.


👉 DynaMights One Year Anniversary with the expansion of the current group!


Yes, it's been already one year since the Dynatrace Community's own Super User Program has been launched! In October, we're celebrating this special anniversary, preparing something to celebrate it properly, and announcing the list of our new DynaMights! 


Keep calm and stay awesome - see you in November!
