From educator to evangelist: how poetry got me into tech

As a teacher for eleven years, PJ Metz found that one of his biggest challenges was to take “I don’t get it” and bring it closer to “I can explain it to others.” His was to take a completely foreign concept and make it so that students understood it well enough to use it in the real world. Today, at GitLab, he says that’s still his job to a degree. There, he takes students and educators from a ...

    I didn't watch the video yet, but let me tell you, the more member you have in an FB group, the worse the community. All you get are people who spam whatsapp/telegrame/dropshippers/crypto sellers who pop in and basically make it a hell hole. Also the collective intelligence of the group goes down because the barrier for entry is literally the floor. You will get post after post of idiots saying, "how do I program?."

    • chetan bhatia
      chetan bhatia 10 months ago

      @Phil Leggetter The 'What would the developer think about X?' persona question is a great reminder. This also feels like a very quick way of engaging Product/Engg about what developers care about. I've also shared these details with the director of our DevRel team. We're trying to get our organization to 'Developers on the platform are also valued customers' or at least some version of that lol. Your inputs are very helpful. TY :)

    • Phil Leggetter
      Phil Leggetter 10 months ago

      We were a go-to for anything developer: "what would the developer think about X?" as continuous informal education. Sometimes this would be reviewing marketing text or defining the developer tracks and positioning for our company conference, other times it would be working with HR to provide input on inclusion and diversity. Often with Sales Engineering, Engineering and Product to include them in events and collaborate on projects from sales engagement to sharing stories to supporting communities they care about. Beyond that we frequently gave presentations to new staff and groups in what we did and way as a form of education around DevRel and more generally around the developer persona We created courses covering how to use our products and ran them internally before then doing them externally. We ran something called OneHack as a way of getting our own employees (based around the world and from 8 acquisitions) hands on with our tech, collaborating with people they otherwise wouldn't and also giving them a sense of a true Hackathon feel.
