This is sort-of a part 2 to our Overwhelm episode (Sorry for the nounification there, we had complaints!). This episode we talk about Gatekeeping, and Gatekeeper mentality. There's a lot of aspects but it's summed up by any sentence starting with "You're not a real developer if you...". The "Just" problem comes up too. Andy helps us work out how to counteract these issues, and encourage a more productive and supportive community.

Our Toolstar (been a while!) is Andy's own Dev Pal initiative (https://devpal.io/) designed to give web types a place to ask a question and get a friendly one-to-one constructive answer. He explains it way better in the episode.

For some reason I didn't have a Jukebox track ready, but thankfully Mark and Andy were well prepared. Mark chose 'Share the Fall - Full Vocal Mix' by Roni Size / Reprazent (New Forms - '97). We're adding this track to our Alt playlist (https://relativepaths.uk/altpl). Andy brought an apple for teacher when he proffered 'The Light' by The Album Leaf (Into The Blue Again - '06), which is added to the Relative Paths Playlist (https://relativepaths.uk/pl).
