I think that the profile page is missing a section for volunteer/community work or maybe we can change "writing" to "contributions"? Yes, I could put this in the Experience area but I think that is unclear and would make it harder to see the career path someone has followed. I could also put it in the "background" free-text area at the bottom but I don't really love that either because it doesn't have the nice structured input that would make sense for these types of entries.
This isn't a duplicate of any of the "show your code" functionality, I think it would be a nice complement to it.
The types of things I'd want to put in the list are:
- Participating on boards or meetings to help develop\improve curriculum for schools
- Industry Fellowships - helping to teach CS classes as an industry expert
- Speaking at events
I think these types of things can be very important to helping to make sure the company and developer have similar values.
