Collaboration with John Lindquist
Welcome to The CodeSandbox Podcast with host Sara Vieira, a frontend developer at CodeSandbox. CodeSandbox is an online code editor that assists developers in creating projects and apps both quickly and collaboratively. In each episode, tune in to hear discussions with knowledgeable developers on everything from developer relations to project building, as we provide listeners with valuable insight to help improve their own technical and creative skills.
Ultimately, this led John to partner with Egghead.io co-founder, Joel Hooks. Between the two of them, Joel and John have built their website from the ground up, hired a team, networked, and have continued to provide valuable learning materials to users looking to kick-start their developer careers.
When asked about the nature of collaboration, John acknowledges the differences between working solo versus working with a team. He adamantly believes that both have their benefits, but that collaboration in nature has a uniquely human quality: connection. John shares his process for working with new instructors and how he helps them zero in on what it is they wish to teach and what action steps they need to take to achieve their goals. John concludes today’s episode by discussing his exciting new project in automation.
Through collaboration, John has been able to use CodeSandbox to help enhance Egghead.io itself as well as to help enhance the experiences of those just starting out within the company.
