Learn In Public 摘要

a habit of creating learning exhaust

  • Write blogs and tutorials and cheatsheets.
  • Speak at meetups and conferences.
  • Ask and answer things on Stackoverflow or Reddit.
    • Avoid the walled gardens like Slack and Discord, they’re not public.
  • Make Youtube videos or Twitch streams.
  • Start a newsletter.
  • Draw cartoons (people loooove cartoons!)

Whatever your thing is, make the thing you wish you had found when you were learning.

  • Don’t judge your results by “claps” or retweets or stars or upvotes

Oh you think you’re done? Don’t stop there:

  • Enjoyed a coding video? Reach out to the speaker/instructor and thank them, and ask questions.
  • Make PR’s to libraries you use.
  • Make your own libraries no one will ever use.
  • Clone stuff you like, from scratch, to see how they work.
  • Teach workshops.
  • Go to conferences and summarize what you learned.

The subheading under this rule would be: Try your best to be right, but don’t worry when you’re wrong.

  • People think you suck? Good. You agree. Ask them to explain, in detail, why you suck
  • You want to just feel good or you want to be good?
    • Then go away and prove them wrong. Of course, if they get abusive block them.

At some point you’ll get some support behind you. People notice genuine learners. They’ll want to help you.

  • Don’t tell them, but they just became your mentors.
  • This is very important: Pick up what they put down
  • Because you learn in public. By teaching you, they teach many.
