Another Subscribed San Francisco is down in the books!
From a Community standpoint, whats especially notable about this years event is that we were able to roll out the red carpet for 25 Community VIPs - including our Community Gurus - where they received cool Zuora swag at registration and also had a chance to meet each other and other key Zuora team members at a post-Subscribed mixer at Executive Order Bar and Lounge.
Clockwise starting upper left: Kevin Lussie, Jacob Feisley, Ben Hazelwood, Andrew Aitken / Andrew receiving his Guru shirt / Andrew, Jacob and Tracy Pelon / Swetha Beepyata and Brandon Ankuda discussing CPQ / Erin Havens chatting with David Hoang / Randi Johnson showing off her jersey
Additionally, Community Guru Maggie Longshore (@maggieL) Principal Software Engineer from ConstructConnect with our Community All-Star Award at our Customer Awards Party. You may recognize Maggie in the Communitys Zuora CPQ forum; she has posted close to 300 posts and has been given nearly 100 kudos. Way to go Maggie!
We also awarded our Gurus with personalized jerseys to show our appreciation for their efforts within the Community. On average, our five Gurus have posted an average of 193 posts, received 87 kudos and have 10 solutions...thats a lot of brain power!

I know youre wondering, What did it take to be selected as a Community VIP or Guru?. Im glad you asked!
Community VIPs were handpicked (by me!) as power users whove found value in the Community - either by writing several posts and replies or reading through a large number of threads, getting valuable information posted by others.
Community Gurus - the ultimate Zuora Community rank - go above and beyond by actively helping other customers and even Zuora staff members by answering their questions or sharing additional use cases. Learn more about the Community Guru program.
