The Productive Developer @ WordCamp Sofia 2017

After spending one great weekend at WordCamp Sofia 2017, I feel energized from all the great people I met there and all the awesome talks I saw.

It was a great event. WordPress people sure know how to make a conference. What also caught my attention was the professionalism of the speakers there.

Despite being a community event, most of the speakers had very professional slides and presented pretty well. On most of the events I go, I see those “Death by PowerPoint” presentations and I feel like that’s just how things are.

But at this event, I saw the tendency of many speakers getting literate in terms of their presentation design. They really put a lot of effort in their slides and presentations.  I even saw some things which were helpful for me as well and helped me improve my presentations!

It was a great conference. If you want to check out all the awesome talks from WordCamp Sofia 2017, visit this playlist.

My talk was less WordPress driven, but even so I believe it can be of great use to anyone who cares about being as great of a developer as he can get.

My talk is about Productivity. About the mindset behind being disciplined and performing in your work and using the right tools to help you achieve more.

It’s titled The Productive Developer.

The idea for this talk evolved through my blog and my original post with the same name.

So, if you care about advancing yourself and your career, give it a look:

My experience with “Future Is Code”

“Future is Code” is an initiative aimed to inspire the young people of Bulgaria to start learning programming by showing them how cool it is. Professionals from the IT industry usually go to their schools from their hometowns and make a 45 minute presentation on a topic of their choice.

Last year, I have visited more than 20 schools throughout the country and led various presentations in front of varied audiences. Next week, I am starting this initiative again.

I want to share with you my experience on this journey, what problems I have faced and how I have resolved them and tell you how you can take advantage of such an opportunity.
