Each week there is quite a bit which transpires at CG Cookie. New education is released across the network, new renders are added to the gallery, all while the crew is working each day to continue to make fresh batches of cookies for the next week! It is easy to miss or loose track on what has been released, this recap I hope will help give you a regular, focused location you could quickly review to see what is new on the network.
So what is new?
Last week in education!
Quite a bit of education was released last week to keep you busy.

Last week with the Cookie Crew
On most days the cookie crew is fast at work with daily tasks to keep the cookie running. This can be from working through Basecamp tasks, website deploys, developing new education or brainstorming future projects. Here is a snippet on what some of us has been up to.
