Preparing for BarcampSG7

Ok, you’re going to think that it’s highly unnatural and marketing-ish for anyone to do a little promotion for a presentation at an un-conference like Barcamp. But let me explain my dilemma.

<sidetrack> Interesting how I use ‘let me…’ on my blog. Not as if you can control me, actually. lol</sidetrack>

If I’ve spend hours preparing my presentation but don’t get to present, I would have wasted my time preparing. And if I decide to propose anything without much preparation, I would be wasting others’ time if I do get to present. I’ve never been to an un-conference on time, so I really have no clue on how getting to present works. Which is why I thought it should be a good idea to do a little promotion so I don’t waste my time preparing and hopefully I don’t waste others’ time listening to me.

If you have founded a tech startup, don’t have /are looking for a technical co-founder and you can’t code, this presentation is for you. I’m going to share on why you should learn to code, what should you do before learning how to code, and what language you should learn. It pretty much can be summarized by the roadmap below.

See you tomorrow later today at Barcamp!

    Elisha, you have yet another competitor. S———.com. And looks like they are already gaining user traction. Check out their videos as well. Really slick. Just thought I let you know…it’s a crowded space you’re in. :(

      Heard of them already! Thank you though! I know there\’re some really good competitors out there, but never say die until I\’m really dead! :D

      Anyway, I\’ll censor the company name in your comments just in case they do Google Alerts on their name. Don\’t need to alert them now. ;)
