Jump-start your OS career

Jump-start your OS career!

Back in August. I spent a week at DevConf.US and got to share a really special story that comes from personal experience while being involved in open source throughout my career.

It's one I've used to open events, as a keynote in various adjusted forms, and as a session like this one. One thing remains the same throughout each telling, it's about sharing how to jump-start your career in open source.

It's a very special talk, one that can reach each and every one of us, regardless of your age, the number of years in our jobs, etc., and most of all, no matter what you are doing right now in your career, you'll learn something new. Not many talks promise you that, do they?

Here's the session recording from DevConf.US 2019 at Boston University.

Just in case you missed the abstract, here's where this session takes you.

It's not a 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.
