Donโ€™t fall for these tricks in your Slack developer chats ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Iโ€™m not as active in my developer Slacks as I once was. I find most of the direct messages Iโ€™m getting these days are not people I know or people who found me online somehow and are curious to learn more about me. Itโ€™s people who want to quickly become my โ€œfriendโ€ so they can extract some resource I have.

Iโ€™ll show you a couple of the scams Iโ€™ve seen lately. Well, one may not qualify as a scam, but itโ€™s still suspect. If you get contacted by someone with one of these asks, you should probably just avoid them.

Thanks to Tequask for the great thumbnail image!

When I recorded this video, I thought it would go live after Halloween. Youโ€™ll hear me reference that fact a couple of times in the video. It ended up going live early, so the light Halloween theme is just in time!
