DevConf.US 2019 - How to Jump Start Your Career in Open Source (slides)

Previously I talked about submitting to in Boston.

This week I was in Boston presenting three talks that got accepted.

It was a lot of fun and happy to see so many faces of friend, to meet so many eager new developers, and to share the stories I have to tell.

Below are the slides from the talk I gave on how to jump start your career in open source.

First the slides and then the abstract:

How to Jump Start Your Career in Open Source

It's not coincidence. 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.
