Happy Holidays and a big Thank You for an amazing year!

This is the last Tech Digest in 2016. We hope, you enjoyed some downtime during the holiday season and still find some minutes to look over what happened in our amazing community in December. We want to say: "Thank you!" for all the amazing contributions to our open source projects and your excitement around our latest technologies. Every New Year gives us the perfect chance to learn something new. The Tech Digest is a perfect place to start! Happy New Year 2017!
