In my last blog How tech culture can contribute to quality I focused on how passion and motivation builds a tech culture. This helps people develop themselves in a positive way while organisations are more successful in delivering high quality solutions. So basically everyone wins. In this post I want to dive into how we can help educate the community in a way that they understand not only what to do with certain knowledge, but also why things work in a specific way.
At JDriven our mission is to improve the quality of software engineering. This is a great and noble cause and also something that cannot be achieved in isolation. I believe this is something that the entire community should be aiming for and can be achieved with the right mindset.
But how can you stimulate and create this state of mind and environment where quality and productivity go hand in hand? First let me start by saying this is my point of view and by no means a silver bullet. Just read and take what you think is useful and leave out what’s not.
Great to be the one kicking off our yearly blog festival Blogtober! This first blog is not particularly technical, but this subject has been the most prominent thing on my mind during the last 6 months. Connection with colleagues and sharing knowledge is part of our DNA at JDriven, better yet, it is part of our vision as a company. Throughout the years we gathered lots of experience in how we share our knowledge with the community. But this was always in a world without social distancing and other connection limitations.
