What Tech learning resources would you recommend to Community members?

Monique vdB Community Manager Sep 14, 2020

Hi there! Nice to meet you all. My name is Monique and I am a member of Atlassian’s Community team. In a past life, I was an English instructor (and even though I now work in tech, I am still a voracious reader).  

I am constantly on the hunt for a good read, whether to learn or to relax. A resource that I reference often is Buzzing Communities, which I like because it gives a good basic overview of community management. I often have to break down community management into digestible tidbits, and Rich Millington does a great job doing that. 

What books/podcasts/webinars would you recommend to other Community members in the Tech industry? How have these resources helped you in your role? Is Teamistry one of them? ;) 

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

@Monique vdB - I recommend folks read Getting Things Done, by David Allen (Goodreads link).

It's 260-ish pages, but is a quick read. I find Allen's approach to processing and handling work to be generally practical. The book encourages folks to capture their next actions in achievable terms.

@Dave Liao sounds like it would be good in general, I'll add it to my library list! Thanks for the rec!

@Monique vdB - Wikipedia actually has a great overview of it. We're all busy people, so I should really just direct folks there instead of to a book haha

@Dave Liao haha I would much rather read a wikipedia summary than a whole book. I'm totally gonna cheat via wikipedia, thanks! ;)
