We get the community together on the third Tuesday of every month—usually! This month, we’ve prerecorded our updates for community members to watch at their convenience as we head into the busy end of year.
At meetups, we discuss the Great Expectations roadmap, watch ecosystem integration demos, and explore different ways data leaders have implemented Great Expectations. Sign up here to join the next one!
Now, let's dive into the roundup.
GX 2022 year in review
Community thanks and kudos
2022 in review
2022 was an eventful year for GX! Here are some of the highlights.
In the platform:
The Batch request (v3) API became the default
Hundreds of custom Expectations were built during a hackathon
Huge improvements to the GX documentation
Lots of new reference architectures
Data Assistants made their debut
As a company, we:
Rebranded to Great Expectations, retiring the Superconductive name
Introduced GX Cloud
Created a new engineering team that focuses on community contributions and integrations
In 2022, 3,412 new users joined our Slack—thank you to everyone who’s been a part of the GX community this year!
We’re looking forward to an even more dynamic year in 2023! If you’d like to be involved our upcoming work through GX’s community design process, DM @tal gluck in our Slack!
It’s not the usual demo, but Kyle showed off our new website! If you missed the announcement, we’ve rebranded, and the company is now named Great Expectations—no more “Superconductive, the company behind GX” confusion.
We think you’ll find the new site a lot more helpful and easier to navigate. And one aspect we’re excited to introduce is the Community page.
Every month, we’ll update the Community page with the same thanks and kudos to contributors and Slack supporters that we’ve been sharing in the meetups. We’re really happy that we now have another way to recognize our users!
If you have cool ideas for what would be useful to you on the Community page, DM or tag @Kyle Eaton on Slack.
