Using Open Source for Fun and Profit

A session at PHPBenelux Conference 2017

Friday 27th January, 2017

1:30pm to 2:30pm (WET)

10 years ago I was a lonely developer sitting in a small room quietly turning out code between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Fast-forward to now and you’ll see me standing in front of audiences all around the world talking to developers about numerous topics.”Why are you bragging like that at me?” I hear you ask. Because it could happen to you too.

The question I always ask myself is “How the hell did that happen?!?!”.

The truth is that the only reason I’ve managed to advance my career so far in a decade is because of the people that make up the communities of open source projects. Not only do open source projects save you time and money, but the friendships and support groups that can be made within these communities is, frankly, staggering.

Join me as I chart my journey from wage slave to conference speaker, and look at how you can leverage the power of open source to make real friends, real money, and real happiness.
