So I’ve been thinking about self promotion a bit lately. As a developer it’s hard to showcase what you know and how well you know it. Showing someone a portfolio of code isn’t going to do much for you and showing a website design doesn’t help with conveying you are a developer on that pretty website. In thinking about this I came to the realization that unless you know the developer already or you’ve had a conversation with them you really don’t know them or how well they know their craft. What better way to see how much a person knows then just listening to them speak with others about a given subject.
