Things I've learned over the years through experience that are now codified.
my computing environment has to be comfortable. Right now, that's Apple's m.o., so I rock the Macbook Pro and iPhone. Luxury tax or not, open or not, it feels great when I use what they build.
any time an interesting but too-expensive or too-exclusive conference comes to town, try to lure the participants to a meetup-style event, like a dinner or unconference alternative
nothing with the word "sprint" in the title
mostly just the word that scares me. It sounds so much like "LET'S GO AS FAST AS POSSIBLE" even though it's really not about that.
nothing with the word "camp" in the title
I've done BarCamps and DrupalCamps and maybe they aren't for me. Why not? Haven't figured that out yet. I didn't miss them when I stopped attending them.
I'll do gatherings with the word "summit" or "con", though. And I seem to like BoFs.
I don't "do" video. Since the first time being on video for an interview, I was so nervous I asked to repeat the question. I'm more of a 'behind-the-scenes' guy.
this will cost me in terms of forgone opportunities. Already some really interesting jobs I had to pass up because the requirements were to make a video.
that doesn't mean avoiding public speaking. I like public speaking! Just not for something that's video only.
in my timesheet go unique identifiers (ticket IDs, URLs, etc.) so people can go back and verify.
