Thanks everyone — my teammates, investors, and of course the community — for all the support this past year and on a more personal note, changing my life. Product Hunt is a joy to build and I’ve been fortunate to meet several awesome people and learn so much in the past 6 months.

Happy hunting and have a great new year. ☺
