As we established last episode, Unicorns are a big part of our IT ecosystem. This week on the Geek Whisperers we discuss Unicorn Husbandry from a one-on-three level. Friend of the podcast and respected influencer Chris Wahl joins us to paint a picture of Unicorns in the wild.
We discuss at length about:
- Talking Unicorn with your employer
- Does and don’ts to being a Unicorn
- What it’s like to be a citizen analyst
- How do you do your day job and still do this other thing?
- The tension between authenticity and being “for hire”
- All the value that isn’t derived from money
