General Notes

I’d be really glad to hear from you, if you want to talk about:

  • content on the site (e.g. share some feedback about an article I wrote)
  • any of my OSS projects
  • presentations I gave
  • career development
  • any topic that is of interest to me (if you know/follow me, you definitely know what they are)

I’ll likely ignore messages:

  • from random recruiters who are interested in my (non-existing) React.js and PHP skills
  • that are hostile and non-constructive
  • that are sales pitches for random services (I’ve never bought into a service after a cold email from a sales rep, so don’t waste your time with me)

Getting in Touch

The best way to reach me is via email. I love email and rarely bother to check messages on LinkedIn (and social media in general). More details below.

Email

Feel free to contact me at first name at batsov.net or hey.com about anything. Email is a great place for private constructive conversations. It’s also a great option to discuss my open-source projects, if you’re the type of person who avoids using GitHub.

I can heartily recommend Fastmail to everyone looking for a great email service that respects your privacy. Using my affiliate link to sign up will give you a 10% discount for the first year.

GitHub

The best place to collaborate on any of my OSS projects is GitHub. I welcome all contributions, no matter how small they are. I also try to help all contributors with feedback and guidance.

My projects are spread over several GitHub accounts:

Feel free to also send PRs addressing the many typos and the bad English grammar in this blog. I guess it’s obvious I don’t really proofread my articles.

Twitter

Twitter is the only social media that I like and use frequently. It’s a great place for sharing quick feedback, shout-outs, etc.

While my DMs there are open, I generally prefer emails over Twitter DMs. For me Twitter is all about public conversations.

Blog Comments

For reasons outlined here I’ve removed comments from this blog.

I keep an eye on the traffic coming to the blog, so if my articles end up on Reddit, HackerNews, etc, I’ll likely notice this and join the conversation there.

LinkedIn

I accept most invitations to connect, but I rarely respond to any messages there. If you want to get my attention on LinkedIn you’ll have to try really hard. Emails work a lot better!
