In the blink of an eye, our chat tea party has reached its 61st session. Along with the passing of time, it’s not just the number of sessions that has increased, but also the growth and gains of every TiDBer in the community. :seedling:

So today, I want to chat with all the TiDBers about what your biggest gain has been since joining the community. For me, as a little helper, I’ve met many like-minded friends in the TiDB community and explored the infinite possibilities of TiDB and technology together. In the community, I’ve seen many different technical insights and experiences, which have brought me new inspirations and ideas. I wonder what the biggest gain has been for each of you TiDBers?
