    Welcome everyone. Time for a good old fashioned introductions thread :)

    It goes without saying we'd like to get to know our customers a bit better, especially outside of the Civo/cloud world, and no doubt you've all got lots in common.

    I'll get the ball rolling with an early contender for most boring intro...

    Hi there. I'm Ricky, I'm community manager at Civo (as well as marketing-type guy). Big into SEO, social media, content marketing. Outside of work, music is my passion: everything from Vangelis to Notorious BIG, The Beatles to LTJ Bukem. Also, Dogs >> (most) people.

    Say hello below and tell us a bit about yourself.

    Hi. Matt here, working mostly in the field of UX now but I do love CSS, JS and frontend development in general :) I'm passionate about inclusion and accessibility. Outside of web things I enjoy shocklingly poor science fiction movies.

    Civo has been a tremendous help for me, both in terms of educating me in the realm of server side and for being the home of my various web projects!

    Huh, is this SimpleMDE I'm typing into?

    ๐Ÿ‘‹ jdrydn here, currently working for a London-based startup. Civo has been excellent to use, been using it for various personal projects for over a year now! Looking forward to discussing all sorts with you all! Outside of engineering I'm a big fan of the CW Flash show & I've just finished Dishonored 2 in low-chaos stealth, now it's time to New Game + myself and go for high-chaos stealth, so much harder!

    @RickyL Agreed, dogs > (pretty much all) people

    Hi all,

    I'm Barry and I work closely with @rickyl to market the Civo brand. Outside work I'm kept pretty busy with my two kids. Been a long time since I've been able to get stuck into gaming (PS3 was the last console which got some decent use in my house!). I'm Irish and follow the rugby... although, after the weekend just gone, let's not chat about that ;)

    It's been awesome to see the forums go live and have a platform for our community to chat to us and others publicly.

    Really keen to hear how we can improve our comms and what you'd like to hear less/more of from us in the future. Looking forward to get to know everyone better :)
