re: Are we "developers" gatekeeping "knowledge" from our juniors and peers? 🤦 VIEW POST


Wonderful article.

I struggle with this more often than I'm comfortable with. With rapidly changing libraries and approaches to development, it's so easy to sit on a high horse when you know something and someone else doesn't.

This line especially hit me:
"Isn't it very obvious, I doubt it's worth writing"

Man, that simple statement (or thought, even) has the potential to kill any motivation of someone who's riding the "I just learned something new" wave. And that's not cool. We're all trying to make cool dev stuff together, and we all win when people learn new stuff. :)


Keep that "I just learned something new" wave going! Woosh!

And keep on surfing and learning!
