I'll be Presenting at Agile and Beyond 2013!

I'm excited to announce that I will be presenting at Agile and Beyond 2013, this Saturday, March 9 in Dearborn, Michigan! It's a great conference, even if you don't come to hear me. ;) There are still seats open. The website lists the price as $129, but if you contact me I can give you a discount code that will get you in for $79.

I will be presenting the talk that I gave at Agile Groupies in October of last year, "Refactor Your Software Career." I will be talking about my three-year journey from stagnant developer to my awesome position today with Pillar. A key component of that journey is my idea of Transformative Networking, which is a way of identifying events that will allow you to simultaneously increase your tech skills and expand your network. In short, the events that I found the most worthwhile for improving my career met most or all of the following criteria:

creating value in desired field with others in person with people in target

If you can't make it to my talk, you can get my original deck here, or I will be publishing my new deck shortly after Agile and Beyond this weekend.
