Communities always start with conversations

Rosie Sherry has developed a wealth of community knowledge from her decade-long experience in the community industry. She founded Ministry of Testing back in 2007, worked at Indie Hackers for two years as their community manager and more recently worked at Orbit as their community lead.


She recently returned to her indie roots by quitting her job and working on her own projects again. In this conversation she shares with us why conversations are at the heart of any successful community.
