My developerWorks is a great tool to use for "giveback". What is giveback? If you are project manager or like to mentor, consider using My developerWorks as a way to share what you know and nurture ideas and skills in others....plus you might learn a thing or two along the way.
Where would you start? First...if you are a Project Manager type....you'd most likely start by planning..... some considerations for your plan:
- Start a blog about what you know and advertise that you want to share, create a project or mentor.
- Reach out to people on their status boards...especially those that mention they are interesting in connecting with experts.
- Join a group and engage on the discussion forum, add important bookmarks
Giving back doesn't have to be big....small steps can make the difference too.
