Though I am a software developer, this is a general-purpose talk and applicable to anyone (not just programmers). The talk covers effective learning, defining scope, phases of a project, the differences between academic, résumé, & passion projects and how to convert them from one to another.
This is the most requested talk from the members of the Free Code Camp Indy meetup group and has also been given as a university lecture at IUPUI.
The speaker for this talk has completed over 200 projects in the past two years ranging from short 1-day projects, to multi-year long endeavors. He'll be sharing his experiences and tips, along with answering questions.
