Building Compassionate Communities in Tech - Isaac Schlueter

Again, this was more of a community focused talk which, as of now, are the most interesting for me. Here are some key aspects of Isaac’s talk:

  • Encourage new interactions to be positive.
  • Turn negative interactions into positives.
  • Programmers need soft skills too.
  • Be empathetic.
  • Sometimes it’s better to talk about something privately.
  • Be careful of what you write because you are what you write. IRL ≠ text.
