In this interview with industry legend Scott Hanselman, Adam Cogan asks some questions to find out what exactly made him so successful in helping the wider community.

Scott works for Microsoft out of his home office in Portland, but he is mainly well recognised and revered by fellow industry folk for his blog, ‘Scott Hanselman’s Computer Zen’, where he regularly posts content that teaches the development community in a number of areas.

In this interview, Adam asks:

  • What things has Scott Hanselman done, that others can do if they want to follow in his footsteps?
  • What are the pros and cons of spending most of the time on the community (vs coding)?
  • What makes his blog different from all the other ones?
  • The decision to go to Microsoft
  • Best and worst days at Microsoft
  • The days of Silverlight – it has its place, for example if HTML 5 can’t do something (i.e. encrypted video) you need a plugin such as Silverlight
  • How developers neglect physical health in their daily lives
  • What Scott is going to be doing for the next 5 years

This is a great video because you get to see why being involved with the development community is a great thing for developers, and you learn from Scott some tips on what you can do to better engage the community.
