GET TO KNOW US, EARN A BADGE!

The success of a Broadway musical isn't solely dependent on those performers on stage, but the magicians behind-the-scenes, too. In other words, your Canvas Community Team is the backstage crew who make your community spectacular-spectacular.

If you see them wandering around InstructureCon signing autographs chatting up the Canvas Community, be sure to say hello and get to know them. They may not sing and dance, but when it comes to getting your best performance, they certainly can help you set the stage.

I asked Renee Carney why she chose to work for Canvas. She shared that she needed a change and challenge from her current job. She was very nice as I interrupted her during Hack Night. Smiley Happy

I met rcarney@instructure.com!

My question was "Why pandas?" Pandas were well loved by one of the founders when Canvas first started. There even a stuffed panda that acted as the receptionist -- complete with recorded messages. The panda just stuck around. Check out I Heart Pandas!!

I met Renee Carney at Course Hack Night. I asked her what her favorite video game was. At first she hesitated....but with a little prompting she admitted being totally into Candy Crush Soda. Hee Hee! (Shh....I am too!)

I found all 4 Community Managers at hack night, but took a selfie with biray@instructure.com​ and rcarney@instructure.com​!  They were all so nice.  I asked Biray and Renee what hack night is all about, and they explained it to me.  It's a great time to collaborate with others and share ideas.  I am having such a great time at my first instcon​.  scottd@instructure.com even recognized me from pics I posted to the album.  How cool is that?!?!  Thanks for being so awesome everyone!20150617_205229.jpg

I meet with Renee. She was very helpful as we met at Hack Night. She not only answered my question, but also taught me about the secret selfie.

My question for her was, if you had a super power, what would it be? Her response was, being able to fly. I can't mock the choice , that was my choice when the same question was posed to me.
