I hope you’ve had a great holiday season so far. I have been off the last two weeks but I wanted to make sure I was able to finish the year strong with another one of these roundups from the community. We’re right at the end of 2021 and there’s a lot of great memories from the year. Of course, we’ve had a few things that we’d all like to forget. Regardless, we’re all here and ready for 2022 to bring new joy, success, and happiness. I just wanted to extend my gratitude to everyone who has taken part in the DevOps on Azure community this year. Your blog posts, tutorials, code samples, and thoughts have helped others grow and succeed. Here’s to even more great stuff in 2022.
