Summary

The holiday season is upon us, so things have slowed down a little so that everyone can spend time with friends and family, that doesn't mean we're at a complete stop though! Remember, we doubled our team size last month! We now have 8 developers working on the project, it was a bit of work getting everyone squared away but we're on track!

Without further ado, let's do this!
