@the_ness_monster There’s absolutely a place here for people who don’t identify as “technical people”!
I’m hoping that Skycrafters will be a vibrant community with folks from all sorts of backgrounds.
Rather than saying that there’s some binary “technical” vs “non-technical” label that we can apply to people, can we accept that everyone’s somewhere on the technical spectrum and meet them where they’re at?
I’m hopeful that some of the more established cloud practitioners will be open to sharing their thoughts and experience with the rest of us, and I’m also hopeful that the people who are less established do the same! It can be really instructive to hear a new perspective from someone with a different background.
To turn your question around a bit and invite you to contribute your thoughts as a valued community member: you identify as a user researcher turned product manager. What has your experience been like seeing the changes in how people approach opportunities? Do you find that the cloud has made it easier for the teams you work with to deliver value to customers, or have there been challenges that the teams may not have expected? I’d love to read a post with your perspective!
