    Hey! My name is Chas and I’m a data engineer at Storyblocks in Washington, DC. We currently use Airflow but I can’t help looking for an actually intuitive solution to scheduling and job dependencies (and execution times vs. schedule times vs. run times 🙄 ). Excited to try Prefect out!

    Hey @Chas! Welcome to Prefect 🙂 . We do have a number of previous Airflow users here and I don't know if you know but Prefect largely based in DC

    It is? That’s awesome! I’m here for at least the next 5-10 years, so I’d love to meet some of the Prefect folks at some point if you do any meetups.

    Welcome, Chas! Great to see some DCers in the mix.
    And looks like you might be a pilot too…

    Awesome; pumped for DC tech representation in the “legit data tools” space, and I hope I can be a contributor and proponent! @Andrew Black Yes, also a pilot; if you know anyone who likes to fly and wants to go up or who is looking to join a Piper Dakota club, let me know.

    Welcome to the Prefect community @Chas! If you're offering skydive jumps, I'm all about it

    Haven’t gotten around to those yet; I have always preferred to stay in the airplane.

    Thanks! Good to meet everyone. Also, I finished my first implementation of Prefect over the weekend and am loving it so far.
