Community TIPS for hiring great people

questions & techniques to select people with the right mindset

About the Book

This book is filled with examples of questions and techniques that you can use to select people. We like the examples yet they are only examples. Nothing else.

Yes we sometimes give an explanation why one of us likes or dislikes a particular question or technique. The idea is to inspire you.

The examples in this book might be perceived as if they are the best and the only way of doing things. Yes we know this is how books are typically promoted. Not this book.

There is not a thing as a best practice. The examples are suggestions. You will need to adapt them to your team’s context and needs.

Pick what you like. Combine the ideas whichever way you find useful. Experiment and evaluate. Evolve or throw away.

And please give us feedback, tell us what other ideas are useful to you.

Have fun!

Changing how we talk about mental health in the tech community.

Open Sourcing Mental Illness is a non-profit, 501c3 corporation dedicated to raising awareness, educating, and providing resources to support mental wellness in the tech and open source communities. OSMI began in 2013 as a speaking campaign by Ed Finkler. Ed started speaking at tech conferences about his personal experiences as a web developer and open source advocate with a mental health disorder. The response was overwhelming, and Ed has continued to speak, gather data, and organize efforts to change experiences of those with mental health disorders in the tech workplace. This includes speaking at conferences and companies, conducting research, and creating documentation to assist companies in making supportive environments for those impacted by mental health disorders. He is assisted in these efforts by selfless volunteers who bring their time and expertise to bear on this important issue.
