Contributors Meetup Async Update - January 20th - February 2nd, 2024

Core Contributor Check-in: Jan 20 - Feb 2, 2024

:stopwatch: Core Contributor Hours

We had the best response EVER to our sprint check-in! A whopping 29 Core Contributors :slight_smile: You guys are legends.

Before I get into it, I just want to mention that filling in Listaflow CC Check-in helps identify issues, blockers, and collaboration opportunities, whilst also aggregating total Core Contributor hours. In turn it allows us to showcase our contributions and accomplishments to the broader community.

Okay, let’s get to it. Here’s a snapshot of our last CC sprint…

There was a total of 532.75 hours of contributions reported, which is 431.75 hours more than the previous sprint of 101 hours. Amazing stuff!

The overall checklist response rate was 45% for this sprint, which is a 27% increase from last sprint.
