For example, you could be a developer passionate about technology, learning, and sharing. You regularly attend or even host technology meetups or community events, and like to keep in touch with likeminded people. When it comes to talking shop with developers, you are able to find out what they are really like – beyond the buzzwords – while making them feel comfortable and respected. However, you could equally well be a recent graduate who has shown passion for community management through various student association activities. In your freetime, you keep yourself busy by contributing to open source projects or deploying your own home automation system.
