## Hello Friend{.bigger .nolink}
[RWX.GG]{.spy} is an [open knowledge](/knowledge/) project and [progressive knowledge app](/knowledge/apps/) that seeks to do what it can to [fix](/learning/rwx/) education.

## Linux Beginner Boost{.bigger .nolink}
A [flipped](/education/flipped/) and [intense](/boost/schedule/) [open course](/terms/open/course/) and community awaits. Chances are you [haven't](/boost/notothers/) experienced anything like it. You'll need more than just this app to get you through it. But don't worry. We got you.

## What Will You Learn?{.bigger .nolink}
First, how to become an effective, tech-focused, [autodidact](/learning/autodidact/). Then you'll learn the Linux terminal while you write *real* code in [nine different languages](/lang/). If you put in the time you'll not only be able to code remotely from any command line in the world, but you'll [grok](/terms/grok/) computers and *all* languages allowing you to learn any of them later.

## What Will You Get?{.bigger .nolink}
A portfolio that will prove your skills and knowledge to everyone and anyone including yourself. Your [impostor syndrome](/learning/cognitive/impostor/) will be sent packing and your [Dunning-Kruger](/learning/cognitive/dk/) will be obliterated by authenticity. What comes next is up to you. What will your verse be?

Title: Proactive Proof of Engagement
Subtitle: Chart the Course, Ask to Engage
tpl-h1duck: true
---
> "Captain, there's a unknown debris field ahead. I've locked in a course around it. How would you like to proceed?"
>
> "Slow to one-quarter impulse and engage."
Yes it's a [Star Trek](https://duck.com/lite?kae=t&q=Star Trek) reference --- specifically [Star Trek Voyager](https://duck.com/lite?kae=t&q=Star Trek Voyager), which everyone knows is the best. But it could just as well have been from [The Orville](https://duck.com/lite?kae=t&q=The Orville) --- or metaphorically from your technology team at work or school. Certainly anyone with military experience will recognize it.
## Prove Your Not Just Checking Out
While this little exchange might not have an officially name, let's call it practicing *proactive proof of engagement*, a critical way to making progress efficiently while demonstrating your interest, attentiveness, and commitment through proactive preparation for the work at hand --- especially when no one is telling you what to do.
Those who are engaged ask *which* questions, not *what*. They have researched and prepared one or more thoughtful options and just need the decision maker to pick one, not do all the thinking and research and come up with exactly what they should be doing, a practice sometimes called *micro-management*.
:::co-tip
Be particularly careful not to get put [on the bench](/what/bench/) without even knowing it.
:::
:::co-btw
["Cowboys"](/what/cowboy/) practice *over-zealous* proactivity --- the opposite of not doing anything until you are told. They do whatever they want and *cut the decision maker entirely out of the loop.* Cowboys *usually* get fired, unless they are both heartless and superior, in which case they get promoted and make enemies.
:::
## Creatives Live By This
This proactive practice is often used in the film and other creative industries. In [The Making of the Lord of the Rings](https://duck.com/lite?kae=t&q=The Making of the Lord of the Rings) or [The Making of Star Wars](https://duck.com/lite?kae=t&q=The Making of Star Wars) you see the directors signing or stamping creations marking their quick approval to proceed with that specific design. That's because the creatives are being *paid* to do the creativity so that the visionaries simply see what's right and mark it.
## Techies Don't Get It
In the tech world, we often think our work is less than creative, that we should be specifically assigned things and not work beyond them, that we should only do what we are told, that if no one tells us what to do it must mean that we don't have to do anything.
