Shift Developer Conference 2018 - How to Jump Start a Career in Open Source

shift developer
A conference in a resort town of Split, Croatia was something I had to see, as you know I have a lot of content to share so I dove in deep on open, application development, cloud and containers with the call for papers.

The acceptances came in and I've been asked to provide a session on the softer skills area of developer and development career advice.

My career in open source has been a long one and I think I've got a few good tips, tricks and pieces of advice based on what's worked on this long and wonderful journey.

It's a bit of an adventure to get out to the town of Split, Croatia, but on June 1, I'll present the following talk:

How To Jump Start a Career in Open Source

It's not magic. It's not luck. It's not going to happen by itself, so what's the secret sauce? Understanding what makes a career in open source grow, what choices are crucial, and what actions accelerate or damage your open source future are sometimes hard to grasp. Learning to position, expand and grow your personal brand in the open source world is what this session provides. Be ready for your next step in open source. Join me for an hour of power where you'll be given a clear and easy to use plan for jump starting your open source career immediately.

Friday, June 01, Time: 17:15 - 17:45
