Our Spoketoberfest celebration has come and gone. It was a spontaneous event prompted by a conversation in a hotel lounge in Bengaluru India. We hoped for the best but had no real expectations what the participation would be like. In the final analysis, we had six projects that attracted contributions from six developers (including myself). Although the numbers match, we had a developer commit to two repos and one repo with multiple committers so it wasn’t just one developer per repo.
Spoketoberfest is wrapping up. Some of you earned your shirt from Digital Ocean (I did this year). Some of you will continue to work on your Spoke to achieve publishabilty after the month has ended. Once you reach the point of feeling ready to publish your Spoke to Share, what then? In this post, I will walk through the steps.

I’m always excited about every ServiceNow release, but Kingston brings some game changing stuff. This post is a high level overview of three new Kingston features that aren’t just ridiculously cool, they may just change the way you think about development in ServiceNow: Flow Designer, Action Designer and IntegrationHub. Note: for a deeper dive into Flow Designer, see Getting Started with Flow Designer . That intro sounds like click-bait, but I don’t think I’m exaggerating.
