Thanks to everyone who attended on Jan. 11th for our first doc-a-thon of
2018! Some notable results:

   - Mesos developer's guide
   <https://github.com/apache/mesos/commit/55b66c624f5a2e44fcf87bdcab8932a2c7a2c284#diff-e3e2a9bfd88566b05001b02a3f51d286>

We plan to continue with quarterly gatherings to improve our documentation.
Long-term goals include versioned documentation on the website and
automatic generation of API docs from our protobuf definitions. If you have
any desire to help with these initiatives, join the #docs channel on Mesos
Slack <http://mesos.apache.org/community/#slack> or reach out to the
community working group!


*Medium Posts*
Going forward, we'll be cross-posting Apache Mesos blog posts on Medium to
increase exposure, get feedback on engagement, and make it easier to share.
Check out the new Apache Mesos publication <https://medium.com/apache-mesos> on
Medium for the latest content!


That's it for this month; until next time,
-Greg
