How to Get One of These Awesome Open Source Jobs

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Saturday 13th September, 2014

2:40pm to 3:20pm (EST)

Getting paid to work on open source is sometimes called “living the dream”. People with skill sets in open source development are in high demand, can have good salaries, and often can work from home, with opportunities to work with excellent coworkers, on projects they enjoy. I will present advice and lead discussion on what the necessary hard skills and social skills are, how to get them, and how to gain the necessary social proofs and reputation, and how to curate a portfolio.
