Digital Architecture Design Day 2019 - Open is Key to Your Career (slides)

digital architecture design day
Previous mentioned that today a unique conference for IT architects took place at  Congress center 1931. The Digital Architecture Design Day 2019 (DADD) asked for a keynote opening that would be motivational.

With a conference full of architects you can expect the keynotes to have titles focused on customer centrist design, digital transformation, and other technically focused topics. Nothing wrong with that, but I thought it might be fun to share a story with you about how being more open might just be the secret sauce for your career as an architect.

Here are a few comments posted by various attendees:

“What a week ☺💜 a week ago i was at #dadd2019, got inspired by Eric D. Schabell whose great talk turned out to be a natural bridge to my workshop session on how to engage and involve everyone in decision making.” -- Maryse Meinen

"Great keynote about sharing knowledge from Eric D. Schabell at #DADD2019" -- Joost Lommers

"Great opening about sharing knowledge from Eric D. Schabell at #dadd2019" -- CKC Seminars

The slides for this session are available here:


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 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 a story sharing a clear and easy to use plan for jump starting your open source career immediately.

Hope you enjoyed the talk, saw something new, and enjoyed the rest of the conference!
