Discussion on: How do you develop your personal brand?

Good topic!

I've been blogging and doing open source for 4 years now. My main goal was to share my journey and what I was learning in the whole process. I didn't think a lot about personal brand, to be honest. I always wanted to spread knowledge and my experiences while working as a software engineer. To have a "good personal brand" is a consequence for me. I focus more on the content and the value, instead of the outcome.

It's good to the ego, but some numbers (followers, likes, claps, etc) are also a good metric to understand the value you're bringing to developers.

I'm just doing me.
