developers,
give up your day job
               please use the hashtag
#thisisquitelongtotypeonaphonebutletsuseitanyway
an apology

        •   this

        •   is

        •   going

        •   to

        •   be

        •   bullets


twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                slideshare.net/dmje
but at least..



        •   ...it isn’t   comic sans



twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                    slideshare.net/dmje
what make a
                 good developer?




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis        slideshare.net/dmje
good developers..


        •   are meticulous

        •   follow the specification

        •   work to the project plan

        •   ...etc




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                 slideshare.net/dmje
what make a
                 great developer?




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis         slideshare.net/dmje
great developers..


        •   do it for the love

        •   do it at home and at weekends

        •   do it at least 12 hours a day




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                      slideshare.net/dmje
stopping being
                      a day-coder

        •   lots of ways, and you might do some of
            them already..

        •   ..but here I’m talking about
            getting together




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                       slideshare.net/dmje
what do I mean by
            “getting together” ?
        •   barcamp / open space

        •   mashup / hackday

        •   Ignite (20 slides/15 seconds) / Pecha
            Kucha (“pe-chak-cha” - 20 slides / 20
            seconds) / Lightning Talk / etc

        •   3-4 talks in a pub

        •   no talks, just...talk


twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                        slideshare.net/dmje
why ?


        •   educational

        •   fun

        •   away from the inbox and the treacle

        •   great to share ideas (and woes..)

        •   beer


twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                          slideshare.net/dmje
have faith


        •   Godin’s “Tribes” has it right

        •   if you want to start something, do it and
            people will get involved




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                        slideshare.net/dmje
some focus = good

        •   team based

        •   project based

        •   idea based

        •   locality based

        •   ...



twitter.com/m1ke_ellis       slideshare.net/dmje
using the web


        •   the web is ok

        •   people are better

        •   using the web to connect people = best




twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                      slideshare.net/dmje
use what works

        •   usually this means simple tools

        •   go for free if you can (most stuff is!)

        •   ..or approach companies and ask for
            sponsorship

        •   “fail quickly”



twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                          slideshare.net/dmje
some of the tools
        •   Basecamp (http://basecamphq.com/)

        •   Google! (docs, forms, groups, apps, labs...)

        •   Ning (http://ning.com)

        •   DropBox (http://getdropbox.com)
            ...a life changer

        •   Box.net

        •   Campaign Monitor (http://campaignmonitor.com)

        •   Event Brite (http://eventbrite.com)


twitter.com/m1ke_ellis                               slideshare.net/dmje
a couple of examples


        •   bathcamp, and bathcamp evening events

        •   mashed museum

        •   Ignite Cardiff

        •   geekdads.org.uk
