Hi, everyone! How's it going?
I took some time off streaming to focus on other things I had to get done, but I can't wait to see you all soon!!
Here something we haven't talked about in a while: speaking at conferences. This is such a great way to make your resume standout & network in your area! The best part is that you do not need to be TED talk material or experienced to give a tech talk. This kind of skill is best learned with practice and getting out of that comfortable zone.
Check out a sneak peek from Chapter 16 of my book “Learn to Code. Get a Job.", and learn more about how you can get started with talking at conferences:
"1) Reach out to a meetup organizer and ask to present about a project you are working on.
2) After the first few presentations, prepare a talk and schedule to give it at a local meetup.
3) Apply to speak at your first conference.
4) Leverage your conference speaking experience to give talks at more conferences and continue speaking!”
Excerpt From: Gwendolyn Faraday. “Learn to Code. Get a Job.: The ultimate guide to learning and getting hired as a developer.”
Would you like to learn how to find a conference to talk at? Let me know via Discord and I'll create a list all about it!
Hope you have a nice week,
