🧪 What are some of the experiments that can really work?

Growth
Have you ever felt out of your depth, like a fraud, and just guessed/bullshitted your way through the situation, petrified that at any time, someone was going to call you on it? - Mike-Cannon Brookes

As you go running constant events, every successive week, you see them returning and people start to network and meet the same people again so there’s a sense of familiarity that binds them to the community.

When it comes to experimenting, constantly keep hosting events, it’s a great way to see which members are consistent and are really helping make the community more engaging.

Share as many resources and thought-provoking questions, reflect on moments from events, and have fun moments to celebrate the achievement.

In 2018, I took a Udacity course in front-end web development and found the community managers to be stellar advocates who were really motivating. I was looking to break into tech, and got inspired and started applying for community-type jobs as a result. I landed my first gig at Khan Academy, where I led and managed volunteer groups for a year before moving onto Quora to oversee writer and power user programs, and am now doing the same at Retool. - Alina Din, Community Manager at Retool
