A question of focus

The problem with The Labrary is that I offer to do so many things – because I could do them, and do them well – that it can be hard to find the one thing I could do for you that would be most helpful:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Agile Development
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Software Architecture
  • Technical Writing
  • Developer Experience
  • Programmer Mentoring

Each of these supports the mission of “making it faster and easier to make high-quality software that respects privacy and freedom”, but all of them is overwhelming. I have credentials/experience to back up each of them, but probably don’t have the reputation as a general expert that someone like Dan North or Liz Keogh can use to have people ask me anything.

So I want to pick one. One thing, probably from that list, and pivot to focus on that. Or at least get in through the door that way, then have the conversations about the other things once you know how much faster and easier I make it for you to make high-quality software.

And I’d really value your suggestions. Which one thing do you know me for, above all others? Which one thing is the pain that the place you work, or places you’ve worked, most need fixing?

Comment here, have a chat, send an email. Thanks for helping me find out what I want to be when I grow up.

    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
