First Study Your People

All too often I see people dive in head first into building communities. Often on impulse without fully understanding what they are letting themselves into. They have come up with 'the solution' before understanding the people, or the problem that needs to be solved.

From my early days of community building I set up ways of understanding what was going on in the ecosystem before attempting to do anything around building an actual community. To me this just felt like common sense.

To build a community, you need to understand your people first.
