Open Source Business Insights from Science Fiction
Drawing upon nearly 14 years of experience as the founder and owner of Palantir.net, as well as a misbegotten youth spent absorbing science fiction novels, films, television shows, and comic books, this multimedia presentation will focus on some of the lessons I've learned about running a Drupal-oriented Web development business using examples from the science fiction genre. Whether you're a freelance developer or part of a Drupal development shop, you'll come away from this session with information that can help you avoid common pitfalls and succeed in your business.
A few of the topics we'll cover will include:
- Developing a plan for your business
- Managing clients and employees
- Promoting your work and interacting with the community
- Talking about Drupal to prospective clients
