Speaking at 360Flex: Making Bling with Flex

I’m speaking at 360Flex next week, Feburary 25th at 4:00 pm. My topic is officially called “Big and Famous: How to Succeed as an Independent Developer”. My topic will cover:

  1. Why and how to become an independent developer
  2. Why and how to make money
  3. Why and how to build your personal brand
  4. Why and how to use Flex to make it all happen

I chose my topic for a few reasons. First, when I started working for myself, I knew jack, and had no one to help me. I flailed and failed on my first attempt. I don’t feel others should have to go through what I did. Secondly, the Flex market has gotten to the point where all the popular topics are taken; I need something unique, yet I feel represents me. Finally, I like speaking about a subject that will help others succeed.

Hope to see you there!
