HostBridge Letters from the Trenches
Our Letters from the Trenches are published after a member of the HostBridge team gets “in the trenches” with a customer and helps find an interesting solution to a technology challenge. If the solution will benefit other HostBridge users, we write it up as a Letter from the Trenches.
- To receive our Letters from the Trenches, email Susan Henderson.
- To propose a topic for a future Letter from the Trenches, contact us and tell us about your integration challenge.

Letters from the Trenches White Paper
At times, when a challenge or solution bursts the bounds of the “letter” format, we will publish the story as a HostBridge “Letters from the Trenches” White Paper. You can find them here.
Before there were LFTs, we published newsletters. Our newsletter archive is available as downloadable PDFs.
