As someone who works on a lot of technical projects, I am indebted to those women who handle some of the "Social Engineering" tasks.


So, Bravo Leslie!


Skills such as yours keep the projects running well, yet I find they are so often under-appreciated in the community. Far too often I see people who take these roles become jaded with them and feel that to really be a part of the project they must more hard technical skills This is terribly unfortunate, I'll be linking to this article to inspire and encourage them :)

    Thank you for your kind words, pleia2, and for your insightful posts on a few mailing lists on which I lurk.

    "Far too often I see people who take these roles become jaded with them and feel that to really be a part of the project they must more hard technical skills This is terribly unfortunate,"

    Agreed, I have seen the same. It can be demoralizing and demotivating, and in the end it is the project which suffers when folks who do heavy-lifting in areas other than coding give up in frustration.

    "I'll be linking to this article to inspire and encourage them :)"

    That's quite the compliment - I hope the piece will be useful and helpful for them.
