Ash started a new project called AnyoneCanLearn after a particularly bad experience on StackOverflow. It’s meant to be a resource for people answering questions and those who answer them to maintain positive atmosphere.
He describes its values as follows:
- Anyone should be able to participate, learn, and teach.
- Respect others.
- Do no treat others differently because of their age, gender, sex, orientation, ethnicity, ablebodiness, fluency in English, or any other personal characteristics.
As someone in a similar position, I’ve definitely caught myself not giving people the patience they deserve. This project is a great reminder that we chose who we want to be and that it is worth the struggle.Posted in ❤ing
