Community News


Message from Jon – say "thank you" and green is good! As your community manager, I want to always deliver you the best in terms of content and collaboration. The activity in the developer forums is very healthy and there's lots of really great information and expertise being shared. So I've got a couple of asks for you:

  • If someone answers your question, accept it! All you need to do is click Accept, it's that simple. Once you do this, the answer will get a wonderful green background so that others can quickly see there's some validated, high-quality content on the forum.
  • And, while you're at it, thank the person who helps you. One of your fellow Predix devs helped you so a little thanks can go a long way. Just add your thanks in the comments section... I know they'll appreciate it.


Predix Transform 2017 is planned for the week of July 10. Tell us what you want to learn about, Vote up ideas or create your own!
