  2. As someone who wrote their first piece on ALA this past year, I can say for sure that it’s not as scary as you may think it is.

    Sure, you’ll be nervous to get the process started, but it’s exciting to see the article come together, and it’s even more exciting to have your writing out in the wild.

  3. This is such a great platform for learning and growth. I am definitely digging into Editorially and submitting something.

    I’ve found writing things that help people grow helps me become a better communicator, designer, and all around friend.

  6. So cool! I found that one of the most rewarding things about the Sass website (sass-lang.com) was open-sourcing the code base. People jump in and help out with bugs and even help with design fixes that improve on the UX! It makes maintaining a website way more fun, and it also makes people feel more part of a community. Everyone wins!

    One thing that is super helpful is if people making changes show screenshots of what the change will entail. In fact, I’ll contribute by adding that to the contribute section of the readme. :)

    Hooray, I’m so excited about this!

  11. This is so awesome! ALA has been a go-to trusted resource for many years, and I love that you’re encouraging people (and making it easier) to give back to the community that has helped so many of us for so long. Thank you!

  14. Fantastic! Now (and I say this with much love) will An Event Apart step up and, in the same vein, pave the path for new speakers to emerge? It’s hard to justify going to hear the same dozen speakers who are at every other web / design / UX conference. (This is a shot at conferences in our industry at large, not just AEA.)
    Back on topic… I love what ALA is doing here. I’ll participate. :)

  21. We just implemented Git at Efferent Media about 2-months ago. It’s sure taking time to get use.
