A repository to ask @holman anything.

I worked at GitHub for five years and have written and spoken a lot about building company culture, improving your development workflow, and really important shit like emoji. If you have a question you're interested in reading me tap out a response for, this is just the joint for you.

Ask a question

Asking a question is as easy as creating a new issue on this project.

I'll try to answer it as soon as I can get to it. Once I answer I'll close the issue just so I know what I've covered, but don't worry- if you have any further questions just respond in the thread and I'll get back to you soon. Feel free to ask a question on any old issue too, even if you didn't create it.

Read some questions

Check out the Closed Issues filter on this repository to browse questions I've answered in the past. I try to use this as an email replacement that everyone can see, so feel free to dig into some of the older threads.


If you have something quick and easy, just ping me on Twitter. 280 characters makes everyone more efficient. I'm @holman on Twitter.
