Sharing Knowledge

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending Laracon 2015 in Louisville, KY. It was a fantastic conference that was well worth the investment.

In addition to being loads of fun, it was a great opportunity to learn some new things, see some different perspectives, and meet some really cool people.

It's hard to pick one thing from the conference to talk about, but Yitzchok Willroth's (@coderabbi) talk stood out to me the most. He inspired the audience by essentially telling them to grow by being a part of the community. Sharing knowledge is one way to give back to the community and help yourself grow in the process.

My personal next step I took away from Yitzchok's talk was to finally start my blog. This is one opportunity I have to share knowledge with the community and continue to grow in my career.

This blog won't always be about development topics, but that will likely be a large portion of it. I want to share what I have learned and continue to learn in order to hopefully help somebody else.

I would also like to encourage you to similarly share with the community, even if you think you're not very far along in your career. Remember that it can help yourself and others when you discuss what you're working on and what you've learned.
