The Datanauts are all about technology, from nerd knobs to new infrastructure to gnarly open source projects. But technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum (excepting satellites and space stations).
You still have to work with people, operate within an organizational culture, and try to get ahead. So today’s episode delves into careers, soft skills, community, and advocacy.
John and the Datanauts talk about where they see activity and energy around specific projects and technologies, and what that means for tech pros who want to keep their skills current.
They also discuss so-called “soft skills” (i.e. how to get along with other humans), share advice on how to deal with work environments that suck, and talk about participating in vendor advocacy groups.
