Codemotion Rome - Sharing career advice and cloud pittfalls

codemotion amsterdam
One of the really interesting and global conference is Codemotion. I've been lucky enough to speak at three different version in Europe.

This year I've targeted the Amsterdam conference and going to also put the talks outlined here in to the Rome edition.

Rome was my first ever Codemotion event and since have spoken there twice, hoping now for a third visit to the great developer conference that they put on.

The talks below are of an inspirational nature and targeting soft skills. They are proven talks that were well received, so let's see if they float for the Codemotion Rome committee.

Storytelling - How to Build and Deliver Your Story

Storytelling is as old as time itself…. Since the beginning of humankind, we share our experiences, we teach, we inspire, we relate to stories as told all around us. They are told by elders, they are told by kids at the dinner table, they are written down in books, and they are captured on video or tape. One thing is certain, stories are being told, but what are your stories and how can you become adept at telling them? Join me for hints and tricks crucial to promoting your open source projects, your personal brand, and generating momentum in your career.
