We have been stuck in front of our computers while trying our very best to resolve senseless issues. It could be a bug in the code or make sense of the technology landscape that showering over our minds. You have to love technology to operate outside your comfort zone.
I am so glad that I have come to fall in love with it. I use my technology every day, talk to my team the latest tech and think of the future of what my company can become. But I know my limitations, I don't have all the time in the world to Google for every detail in a possible solution. I don't have all the knowledge of the emerging technologies that are coming my way. There is one way to overcome all of this, and it is not tech.
The power of the community of technologist around me is what I have always been leveraging on. By creating a community around me helps me accelerate my understanding of technology topics, far more faster if I would to do it on my own. My community, also known as Tech Bonfire, allowed me to learn about Blockchain, its pros and cos, industry happenings and possible use cases - all within 45 minutes. The power of the community, I don't have a single doubt that a technologist should leverage on his community to advance into the future. Build one today, if not join mine at WORQ.
