"I met DigitalOcean in 2014 when I was looking for a fixed-price cloud solution for a small business. The impact of simplicity and performance was so great that I became a fan. After that, I met a lot of amazing people there. A tip I would give to Navigators is: Open your mind, open your heart, and help others – that's the key!" - Fernando Pimenta
"I use my experience to help other developers. My advice to all DigitalOcean Navigators is to help each other work together while engaging the community. The community DigitalOcean offers is unique, warm, and great. And I loved DigitalOcean for it’s community and tutorials before I even used any of its resources." - Mouhsen Ibrahim
"About 10 years ago I started a meetup group for cloud devs which grew to thousands of developers. I started working with DigitalOcean when they began supporting our community. I love the developer community and there are many opportunities to make a big difference. So go out into the community and start making it more friendly, more accessible, and more diverse." - Ahmad Awais
