GetOutOfTheCrowd-featured

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to do a talk at the Herzing College, the school I went to. They allocated me one hour with the students, so I decided to split my time in two parts. Firstly, I did a talk on how to get out of the crowd for the first thirty minutes. The... Read more

Don’t be ashamed of self-promotion

promotion-featured

Let’s be honest, we all use our social media channels to promote ourselves, and our projects. Many people feel ashamed to do so. I don’t. I think we shouldn’t… There are a lot of things we can promote: our expertise, our friends, our ideas, our tastes, our knowledge, our projects, our company… Like everything in... Read more

It’s about how people perceive you

perception-featured

As a teenager, I was working in a bowling. One evening, my boss looked at me, and asked me if everything was fine: she saw that I had red eyes. I knew what she had in mind: is Fred smoked weed before his shift? I didn’t know why my eyes were like this, but the... Read more

Who are your rock star developers?

rockstar-featured

I know; many people don’t like this rock star or ninja terms to qualify an exceptional developer, but it’s still a good way to share the information. Actually, I don’t know why people don’t like it, but it’s not the topic of this post. Whether they are local people, worldwide famous, or maybe the hero... Read more

A better way to showcase my speaking experience

speakup-featured

One thing I like to do when someone ask me to speak at their event, is to let them know that they can count on an experienced, professional, and authentic speaker. I always had a speaking page on this blog, but the information wasn’t well presented. I decided to do a good cleanup, and finalize... Read more

Have you ever think about your personal brand?

doepicshit-featured

Do you think personal branding is not for you? Why should you care about your own brand? After all, it’s not like you are an actor or the lead singer for a rock band. In fact, it’s never been more important for you to think about yourself as a brand. I think it’s so important... Read more

Say hi to my new friend the gnome

fharper-featured

I wanted a logo, and I also wanted to try 99designs as I heard a lot about it in the startups space: since this logo was just for fun, and not a real need, I thought I could try it. I’m not a big fan of this kind of website where many designers compete against... Read more

I’m working on a personal branding book for developers

doepicshit-featured

This year I got two book writing offers, but the technology/topic didn’t interest me enough to make the deal with the editor: those opportunities make me think that I would like to write a book. Why not? I like to write. I like to share. I would like to develop more about a topic that... Read more

Personal branding, the recording of my presentation

kws-fred-featured

Remember the presentation I did on personal branding at Kongossa Web Series? I think it was one of the best presentations I did in my public speaking career, and I was a bit upset that I had a problem with the recording of my session. Actually, it wasn’t that bad as the organizers told me... Read more
