Since the Summer of 2018, we have gathered a few thousand developers on the Sanity community on Slack. The excellent people there are not only helping each other out. It’s also a place where we show each other what we have built, and where the Sanity team can get useful feedback on upcoming features. We thought it was time to share some of the enthusiasm, reflections, and insights that we see every week.
We're hosting a meetup at Heavybit’s clubhouse on February 5th. It will be all about how to build voice assistants, and how you can customize the Sanity Studio. If you don't live in the Bay area, don't worry: We will record and put it up on YouTube.
Eunjae (@eunjae_lee) reflects on building with Markdown, MDX, and Portable Text. While the former gives you an easy start, it might get cumbersome when you move into richer content.
Eunjae also shares how he uses inline blocks with objects, and references to add flexibility to recipe content.
Kevin Wolf made a really cool Gatsby starter that let you launch a new website on Zeit’s Now in a nice command line flow. He also delivered a talk about it at the Gatsby Costa Rica meetup. Muo Bueno!

Every week there are new sites and services that is deployed with Sanity.
Rosen (www.rosentomov.com) has made a neat portfolio site for the painter Maria de los Angeles Rodriguez Jimenez using ' and Sanity. He reports that the authoring experience ended up being so great, that he actually didn't need to explain it:
Funny thing is Maria wanted me to guide her on how to use Sanity (she’s not into computers at all), so we scheduled a call. She called me an hour after I’ve created an account for her, to tell me she’s already populating contents and no need to explain anything!
