This morning I took a short trip down to Marietta, Georgia for the Atlanta Code Camp. I was able to attend this event a couple of years ago, but only for a short visit. It was a great event and looked to be packed. My first session was more of a soft skills talk geared toward people who are interested in being a consultant and starting their own business. There was a great crowd and some excellent insights. Most notably was regarding marketing yourself.
One of the attendees mentioned attending a baseball game with a handful of business cards, then throwing the cards in the air when a big play was made at the game. He said afterwards he got a couple of phone calls from people who found his card and a job opportunity. Amazing!
Below are the slides, which are unfortunately not as enjoyable without a group of folks sharing their experiences.
