    better, & build skills. Marketing and Engineering work hand in hand. Farrah wants to be a nerd. Danielle desires to connect and learn from others outside of her immediate technical community.

  22. What and Why We knew we wanted to create something

    that was useful to our company (we focus on business value). We knew we wanted to build something that was helpful to a broader audience than just our current customers (We are a startup and always looking for new users). We knew we wanted an inclusive theme.

    a limit of 5000 bytes • We can fix bugs alongside building • Spacing is different in different languages • Will need additional functionality to process hyperlinks and images that appear in markdown formatted files • Working together is fun
  45. Next Steps Next steps • Looping to allow for longer

    translations • Add polly (text to speech) • Ability to process more than plain text files
