You’ve heard it all year and I’m sure you’ve felt it too — there’s been an immense amount of change in 2020. At MuleSoft, we’ve switched to completely working from home, learning to manage our personal and work lives under one roof, navigating the intense health landscape with COVID-19, all while helping our customers adapt to the new, all-digital world. I speak on behalf of all of MuleSoft in saying, I hope you are staying healthy and safe wherever you are in the world.

Our blog content reflected these changes. In this post, I’ll be sharing the top 10 blogs from 2020.
