S1 E9: We're like Detectives (Nick / @nickytonline)

Nick Taylor joins the show to talk about his origin story, how he got started working with spreadsheets on a yellow monochrome computer and how his interest in web development and work in open source eventually lead to him working with Forem and the Dev Community.

We discuss putting yourself out there, getting involved in open source, the fears you might run into and how just stepping into it will help let the fear slip away...as well as how horrible out first open source commits were!
