Thanks for the question Nick!
I like Behance because we are able to work on a website that helps others - specifically artists/creatives. We have a free to use, no ad product that allows us to focus on just making it better for ours users. The business goals also align with our users (in helping them share, collaborate, and get jobs) and that's good to understand. And I like our team because like I mention in dev.to/hzoo/im-the-maintainer-of-b... we care about software quality in it's various forms, we do "lunch and learns" every once in a while to talk about various things we are learning whether it's something technical or Mike's "analyzing song lyrics" talk. We care about our users, the teams wellbeing, and collaborate between design, community, development, business, etc.
I would sum being a maintainer like the tweet I posted recently: twitter.com/left_pad/status/940384....
I think you can start by trying to make something you'd like: a website, an app, a game and learning to do the steps it takes to make that happen. Unless you are the kind of person who is able to take classes or learn from tutorials on more abstract or other things. I would find a group that you can do it with instead of doing it alone.
Thanks for your time and answers.
If i am allowed one more question.
I am trying to start side project(it will be an SDK) and find it hard at this time to plan and structure my library and get started. Could you give me some tips on this matter ? (I'm looking on getting myself to the next level on thinking the bigger picture and to creating libraries/sdks/systems)
