Should you create content in English or in your native language?
Lauro Silva Nov 06, 2017
Recently, I took the decision to put out content and build an online presence as a developer. But before I start, I need to decide whether my content should be English or Spanish, my native language.
If I create content in Spanish there is a huge potential for growth since there is few high-level technical content. On the other hand, English is the de-facto standard language of software development and it has inherited benefits.
Jeff Atwood, the founder of Stack Overflow, has said it very well in this blog post on why if you want to be a decent programmer, you need learn English and preferably contribute and participate using English.
I'm sure, that this is a question that many non-native English speaking developers have asked themselves. Should you create content in English or in your native language?
