Every time you work on an application you’re showcasing your work. But if you work on a large collaborative project, how can someone see what contributions you made? How do people know that your development talent is better than someone else’s? You can prove your worth by exposing your knowledge and wisdom. The more you’re publicly seen as an expert, the more you become an industry influencer, and as a result you can and will raise your rates.
Please register for my Silicon Valley Code Camp session “How to become an online influencer” on Saturday, October 8th at 3:30pm. Watch the video below for an outline of what you’ll learn. And to get a head start on the class, read my Mashable article, “HOW TO: Jump-Start Your Career by Becoming an Online Influencer.”
I look forward to seeing you there.
