Stargate Community

Welcome to the Stargate community!

This project was open sourced in September 2020 and thus we have a fairly young and growing community. We're here to explore new ways to interact with data at scale and have some fun along the way. We build in the open and use the channels below for communication.

For discussion and questions, join our mailing list: stargate-users
