Beginners Guide for Building a Personal Brand in the Developer Community

As developers we often feel like we're immune to the necessity of marketing ourselves. But wouldn't it be nice to be sought after for lucrative speaking, writing, or consulting opportunities? Well you can be...if you create a great personal brand.

Doing so will provide rocket fuel for your career as a developer. You’ll find better jobs or become the “go-to guy” in certain situations; you’ll become known for your expertise and leadership; people will seek your advice and point of view; you’ll get paid better to speak, write, or consult. As a developer, there are many tools you can use to scale, and this office hours will help you understand how to get visibility, make a real impact, and achieve your goal with a lot of time for Q&A. No need to be a marketing expert or a personal branding guru: be yourself, and get your dream job or get to the next level of your career.

We're going to be speaking with Frédéric Harper, Apress author, Head of Developer Relations at Mashape and former Evangelist of Mozilla on how to become a first-call developer in whatever your speciality is. Whether it's booking a better job or picking up new opportunities on the side, building a personal brand alongside your work will yield huge returns.
