It’s hard to believe that a little over two years ago, the first Barcamp was held – being my first foray into the DC tech community. It was a life-changing experience, as it’s where I met all the people I work with on a daily basis, inspire me, and genuinely consider my friends.
I’ll be speaking/organizing on two main topics:
After years of moonlighting before freelancing full time for the past year under the skeevisArts brand, I’ve learned a lot, and failed a lot. Knowing that there are many others in the same position as me, as well as even more who hope to go out on their own, I figured it would be beneficial to hold an open discussion on lessons learned, and to exchange ideas and discuss issues.
While my bread-and-butter work is web development, I’m moving into mobile application development, under the Droidee moniker. Having developed two Android applications (likely releasing in the next two weeks), I’m partnering with Gyuri to do a basic introduction to Android, and a walk through of some code.
