Happy New Year!

First things first, React Native 0.62 is on the horizon - with the first RC shipping out late last month. No details on changes quite yet but it looks to be a big one.

Aside from that big news - welcome to 2020! I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and time off if you had it. For a bit of a retrospective on last year, here's a list of the top 5 most popular links from 2019:
