Previously, I talked about submitting talks to the DevConf.us in Boston. This week, I was in Boston presenting three talks that got accepted.

It was a lot of fun, and I was so happy to see friendly faces, meet eager, new developers, and share stories.

Below are the slides from the talk I gave on how to jump-start your career in open source. Check it out!

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. 

Thanks for watching and feel free to reach out via the comments section if you have any questions or insights.
