First and foremost, welcome to the Exasol Community! We're happy to have you!

The Exasol Community is your one-stop-shop for all things Exasol. It's a place to engage and collaborate with your peers. It's a place for education and thought leadership on best practices. And it's also a place where we can exchange with you directly on how to improve and extend the product. 

We want your experience in the community to be the best it can be, so we put together this guide to get you familiar with the community quickly.  We hope these are helpful!
