This site is a labor of love, created by seasoned technical community veteran, Jamie Langskov (@techlorax). Community for Humans is built by community managers, for community managers, as a safe space to exchange ideas, share opportunities, and discuss the emotional labor and trauma that community managers handle on a daily basis.
Jamie has worked with technology-focused communities like Colgate-Palmolive, SAP, and MongoDB. She strives to connect her community members with the resources they need to grow and achieve their personal and professional goals. At work, she measures success by the relationships she has built with her members that ultimately translate into measurable business objectives.
I am a strategic developer relations and community leader with over a decade of experience in managing technical communities. I’m passionate about data privacy and protection and I spend most of my time thinking about scalability, process-oriented operations, and data-driven decision making. I believe that the developer experience should be built on the willingness to give freely and to enable developers to build amazing, innovative things with as little friction as possible. Community is a long strategy built on authenticity, transparency, honesty, humility, accountability, humanity, and trust. My work translates into increased user adoption, ARR, customer satisfaction, and evangelism amongst our developers and their peers. The success of my team is always the best reflection of my own success.
At home, I’m a mom, stepmom, and pet mom. I have 3 kiddos in the house: 12, 11, and 3 – all girls! We also have 4 dogs, 3 turkeys, and countless chickens roaming our 11-acre farmstead in rural Central Oregon.
