Two awesome and related announcements: My second daughter, Jamie, was born this past Sunday, November 6, 2022. Thus, I will be noticeably quiet for a couple months as I spend my parental leave with my family! In a couple weeks, the Developer MVP 2023 application will go live and stay open through the end of this calendar year. Those things are related? How? Because we need more women.

One of the ongoing issues that we deal with in the Developer Program is the continuity of the free Personal Developer Instances (PDI). No matter how well intentioned you are, it is always possible to have a time period where you are out of the office and miss the email about your Developer Instance expiring. I don’t like the idea of anyone losing their work but there is only so much we can do to prevent it.

Tokyo is here and today we want to highlight some of the new mobile features in Tokyo A brief history ServiceNow had a mobile app called the ServiceNow Classic app for quite some time, introduced relatively early in ServiceNow’s history. This was the sole mobile app up until a few years ago. ServiceNow then acquired a low-code/no-code mobile app enterprise company called SkyGiraffe. The mission was to allow ServiceNow customers to be able to build their own mobile workflows without needing to write iOS or Android code.
