I will follow-up with each of you shortly, but the most important thing to do is .... keep working to improve your application!

Instead you will provide the details on a Google Doc that I will send to each of you. 

I want to shout out to all of you who used new Redis Modues AND Redis event-features. Your apps were inspiring and we hope you will continue to learn more.
