AnyoneCanLearn

(Permalink)

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.
