QuickPod™ Generated Audio Version
Hey there, Innovators and Dreamers! 🌟
Things are moving fast… REALLY FAST! 💨 It’s not even been a year since Chat-GPT launched publicly, and the innovation and disruption we’re seeing is unbelievable. That's the speed of today’s innovation, and it's breathtaking. And we’re here for it.
So much so that last week, we held our first Build-a-Thon to put all the tech we’re discovering to work. Participants dove into Python for the first time ever and emerged with a fully functional app in under three hours, thanks to Chat GPT! What?!?!? The apps that we created were incredible, too! Stay tuned because we'll be sharing them here soon.
This week, we're not just talking tech; we're living it. From the AI-driven buzz that's reshaping our digital conversations to the sci-fi-esque leap into controlling our dreams, we're at the forefront of the fast and the fascinating.
Here’s what’s going on…
