As a developer, it’s exciting and challenging to stay up to speed with the latest trends in technology.Every day, new languages, frameworks and devices capture our attention and spur conversations in meetups, forums and chats.However, our developer community is made of people, not tools, and it’s fascinating to explore its sociopolitical aspects. We are always beginners at some things and experts at others.Along the way from beginner to expert we ask a lot of questions, but it can be intimidating to ask for help.This talk will be split into two halves: giving and then getting technical help.This talk gives concrete tools to help you ask with confidence, and highlights common expert mistakes that inadvertently make people feel foolish.It's important to learn how to manage your contributors in open-source.Once you learn it, your project will succeed and more contributors will flock to you!
