Tech MeetUp: Why Bother Presenting as a Developer
When hear presenting most programmers neglect it as something not worthwhile, something meant for managers. And it is true that managers do have to care about that, but why should you care about it as a developer? Is sticking to your technical domain enough to be great at what you do? If that is so, how come there are a few developers who get the best opportunities and others who struggle to find a few? What makes the best stand out from the rest? In this talk, Preslav Mihaylov will tell you what is your incentive as a dev to invest in presenting, how can it skyrocket your career and turn you from someone who barely scratches the surface of dev opportunities to someone who gets opportunities knocking on his door.
