With fall at our doorstep, seems like the right time for some new news about the DataRobot Community and beyond.

In this newsletter, we cover some recent happenings in the community and changes and updates you can look forward to. Also, we touch upon some other activities and opportunities you can check out to stay informed. 

But first:

Community members take center stage

We're using this opportunity to give both a shout out and a thanks to some especially busy community members. By sharing your own journey and insights, tips, and best practices, you're helping other members achieve success while also defining your expertise and paying dividends your own career and successes. Make sure to check out these members on the community leaderboard and, hey, maybe you'll find yourself there too?

First, some community news

  • We're updating the survey we use to collect your feedback. Questions crafted for the new survey will help us provide the best experience for our members, and identify where we need to get better. Also, the new survey will include only the most valuable questions, so you can zip through it so fast and get right back to your day.
  • Tip of the Day (under the Read category) continues to be really popular! We add new ones each week and love to hear your ideas for new ones, so keep them coming.
  • Another change you can look forward to very soon is further consolidation of the Ask category. This is another push to make it very easy to ask your questions and find answers. Over the next week, we'll be moving the Ask > Data Prep discussions under Ask > Platform. When done, you'll be able to ask all questions about the DataRobot platform right under Ask > Platform. And, you can continue to use the Ask > AI Cloud Platform Trial board for platform trial-specific questions.
