What are the best plugins to increase productivity on Emacs - Xmodulo | Open Source | Scoop.it
Over a year ago now, I went looking for the best plugins to turn Vim into a full-fledged IDE. Interestingly, a lot of the comments on that post were about how Emacs already has most of these plugins built in, and was already a great IDE. Although I can only agree about Emacs' incredible versatility, …Continue reading...

How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development

How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development | Open Source | Scoop.it

HR professionals rely too much on formal training for leadership development. More strategic ways of learning and experiences outside the norm will help create future leaders.

Davell Logan's curator insight, August 5, 2015 3:05 AM

My opinion would be human resources really need to listen and get in the trenches with leaders in all areas of an organization, including seeing how everything operates on a day to day basis for at least one week. Just my opinion. 

Sandeep Gautam's curator insight, September 2, 2015 1:22 AM

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, May 9, 2016 1:06 PM
This is a concept that I don't understand why there isn't more remote work out there, and why more companies out there aren't embracing it. We have the technology, so why isn't it embraced more? This would provoke more collaboration and efforts to work together, as well as allow the best talent to be hired rather than who is close enough but willing to make the commute. For much of the tech community world, this would be an ideal situation. What do you think? Include your comments below. --TechCommGeekMom
