Say Hello, Get Swag

:dash: Rapyd will randomly select someone that introduces themselves in the community each week to receive a highly coveted Rapyd Developer Swag Box. It could be you!

tl;dr
Copy :point_down: and then paste a new topic under Introduce Yourself

:world_map: where you’re based
:building_construction: what you’re working on
:magnet: what you would like to get out of the community
:partying_face: one fun fact about you!
:link: a link to your social media

We want this to be an inclusive and safe space for all to participate openly in discussions about things that matter to them in the world of fintech and payments, their teams, and their organization. People are here from every corner of the globe and every role, and that’s cool, but it can also be confusing and intimidating, especially to newcomers, but also to many of us who day to day work in much smaller teams with people we are familiar with.

One thing we think can help make our community more welcoming is to make it easier to find out who someone is when you come across them here. So here are a couple of tips:

TIP: Introduce yourself (Update your user info)

Take a couple of minutes to go to your profile and add the following information:

On the account tab:

  • Full Name
    Adding your full name makes it easier to connect who you are when we cross paths in other places (like Slack) if you don’t use the same username. It also makes it easier to mention you.
  • Profile Picture
    If your photo didn’t automatically load from gravatar, upload it here. Use the same photo you use in Gmail and Slack. It’ll make it a lot easier to recognize you across the variety of platforms we use to communicate.

On your profile tab it’s helpful to update these fields too:

  • Location
    Add your location so people know where you are. In addition to gaining a better sense of where we’re all from, it can help us understand who else you may work alongside (we might know some of them!).
  • About me
    Include your role and what you’re working on. Add anything else you want too. It’s a great way to show a bit of your personality in brief. The field supports markdown, so you can add links to your twitter profile or blog too.
