Hey everyone! I am sharing this week's episode of the DevDiscuss podcast in place of Jess who is taking some well-deserved time off. She'll be back soon to share these weekly podcast posts. In the meantime, happy listening! - Gracie
We're midway through the week and that means... a new episode of DevDiscuss! In this week's installment, @ben and @jess talk about Instant Relay Chat (IRC) and other community-building tools. Kind of the perfect topic for the DEV Community, no?
Sara Chipps, Co-Founder of Jewelbots, which provides STEM-based toys and kits for kids. She is also the Director of Public Q&A at StackOverflow.
Jason C. McDonald is the CEO and Lead Developer at MousePaw Media, which provides cutting-edge educational software for classrooms, homeschooling, alternative learning programs, ESL programs, and more.
In short, this week's guests know a LOT about communicating with budding technologists and developing community resources in a way that's scalable, engaging, and meets everyone where they're at.
- How IRC fits into their respective developer journeys
- The evolution of hacker communication tools and communities
- Various aspects of IRC's culture, good and bad.
... and much more! Listen to S2E3 of DevDiscuss today!
