For the Love of Code - PHPNW17


Published on

The talk is centered around the idea of community, and PP has one of the best communities we know. Its people are passionate, enthusiastic, loyal, and smart. But, there is a problem. We somehow feel, whether we like to admit it or not, that for our community, our language, to be great, it must be at the cost of another community or another language.

Using the philosophy of “Think Win-Win” from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, I will discuss how shift in attitude can means we can all promote our beloved language and promote others too, and still win.
