Relationship with Other Companies
We have a long history of grooming relationships with other companies, such as Microsoft. We actively pursue these relationships and go out of our way to meet with people from other companies and invite them to lunch or dinner or support them in their own goals in various ways. For example, Microsoft evangelists have internal goals to be involved in community events, and they are often receptive to us helping them with this. This is something our entire CODE ohana needs to be aware of. Let us know if you need help in engaging with your local representatives of other companies. Also, let us know if you have new ideas about other companies we should approach and be involved with.
