I presented at DrupalCon London on
contributing to Drupal. The talk is called “How to have an open
relationship… with software.” Sadly, there is no nudity,
polygamy or even dirty jokes.
Nope, it’s just about how it is strategic
to contribute to Open Source software and techniques for sales, marketing, management
and developers. I did the same
talk at Drupal Camp Montreal in September (video and Slides - not matching video).
It’s a lot of fun to do this talk. It’s also the first time
I’ve presented on non-technical topics. There is a lot more doubt there.
When presenting on a technical topic I know that I am an authoritative voice on
the topic. That is, I have facts at my disposal. Solid, indisputable knowledge
that my audience (at least 99% of them), will not have. That is a position of
power, it’s why
- Engineers have good stability and income
- Managers are scared to death we aren’t really working hard
- We had a boss screen in DOOM and it worked, etc.
My new talk is all opinions.
