We can only keep learning if we keep teaching (100 Bytes Of Wisdom: Day 72)

We can only keep learning if we keep teaching

Tech is a field where learning is a constant, however, I'd go further and say that this means you should always be teaching. If you learn something well enough you should be able to teach it. And without folks teaching others, how were you able to learn in the first place? This field benefits so much from an awesome few doing a lot of teaching, and you should be both grateful but also try to do your part, too. Whether it be a full blown blog or even just some one-on-one time with a colleague. For as long as learning will be essential in software, teaching will be, too.

Heads up: As with any terse bit of advice, there will be exceptions of course, and subtleties and nuance that can't possibly be captured in a Byte of Wisdom. This has been what I've experienced, I'd love to hear yours in the comments too!
