My personal non-transcript, that tries to catch what is going on, and what kinda stood out.
- The CEO is really happy to have learned so much lately, and to work on such a great platform
- They are talking to "community members"
- He is so proud of that great platform, and the whole world using it
- There was real surprise by blunt feedback coming from "engineers"
- He was surprised that the Stackoverflow users he spoke with ... didn't know that stack exchange has other communities, that specialize in other important aspects in today's IT world
- So: they have ideas how to better integrate the one big with smaller communities
- There are 23 million "software developers" in the world, and 46 million people are coming to stackoverflow each month
- Beyond the foundation of the community ... there are the 3 different product lines (talents, the showcasing stuff, private teams).
- Large companies coming and building large "in house" "private teams" installations.
So, no surprise: it is mainly about IT related topics. It seems that only those smaller communities are worth mentioning that somehow relate to that.
If you hope to learn about the relationship between company and community: no need to listen in.
If you want to hear a lot of buzz words, and typical marketing "we are so good, and well positioned to grow ...": then sure, I have heard worse. It really helps that it is just 15 minutes. You can listen to the whole thing (even bump up speed a bit) without feeling the need to take a shower afterwards. But as said, for me, there was no "oh gosh, how many great things I learned today" moment after listening to the whole episode.
