How to Raise Your Profile As a Developer (And Why You Should Bother!)

About this event

We like to think the tech industry is a meritocracy: if you put your head down and do your work well, you will be recognized. Unfortunately, this is not typically the case. In order to advance your career, you will likely need to raise your profile internally at your company and/or externally in the broader developer community. During this session, Lauren Schaefer will share personal stories of how she has worked to overcome the discomfort of raising her profile. You’ll leave this session with practical steps you can take in the coming weeks and months to raise your profile.
