Developing your Brand as a Technology Professional

Have you ever thought about how you brand and market yourself? What is the brand people assign to you based on their interactions with you, feedback from others, and what’s available online? What is the perception of your brand that potential employers will have from doing simple Google searches to learn more about you? Now, more than ever, it’s important to evaluate what your perceived brand might be, and spend time thinking about what you want your brand to be. You need to determine how you’ll achieve that brand, how you can effectively communicate your brand, and what other actions you can take to influence your brand. We’ll hit on all these points, along with qualities that may be desirable to have as part of your ‘Professional Brand,’ during this session.

The JavaScript Quiz Show

“On a scale of 1-5 (5 being ‘expert’), how would you rate your JavaScript expertise?”

What would happen if you were to have an in-depth technical interview on JavaScript RIGHT NOW? How well would you do?

In this highly-interactive presentation I’m turning the tables on the standard “lecture and learn” style and putting you in the hot seat.  Sure, the discussion will cover the concepts, patterns and practices of JavaScript experts, only I’ll be asking the questions and everyone else will be giving the answers.

This format allows plenty of room for everyone to participate however they choose, regardless of skill level or experience.  In other words, feel free to join in the discussion, simply sit back, listen, and learn from the folks around you, or anywhere in between – your level of involvement is entirely up to you.

Here’s your opportunity to go on that really difficult technical interview, only in a much more forgiving environment where a wrong answer doesn’t cost you the shot at your dream job.

Are you game?
