Did you win at work recently?!

Did you solve a problem, untangle a mess, or ensure that something didn't become a problematic, tangled mess? Write it in your Brag File right now! Don't forget the details: what happened, what your role was, and what it says about your whole vibe. What's a Brag File? It's just a doc you keep your wins on, so you can use them in cover letters and interviews. Easier than trying to remember that one project you did 2 years ago!

Rootscamp is coming!

Rootscamp is an unconference for the progressive movement. It's a great place to meet people, learn things, and teach things, and it's part of the lifeblood of the progressive community. It's in Baltimore this year; I'll be there!
