My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “What We Can All Learn From Techies.” In it, I discuss a trend I’ve noticed in the technology world that we could all take a few cues from.
Sunday night, when most of us were relaxing and watching the Golden Globe Awards, I received a text from a friend. It said, “I spent some time today figuring out a new video software.” And, it had a link to a fun short video.
This friend doesn’t use video at work, but he and two other IT guys are creating a YouTube channel. This is the second project for the team, who also recently started a podcast, to learn about podcasting.
This occurrence isn’t an uncommon one in the technology world. Techies are creating new social work groups on Meetup.com every day. They gather together and learn how to use software like WordPress, Python, Java, Oracle and PHP. They bounce ideas off of one another about how to start a podcast, how to build video games or how to make mobile apps.
To learn how you can learn from the technology community, read my entire Memphis Daily News column here.
