Hi everybody! I just finished giving my presentations at the External Development Summit 2014 in Vancouver. Here are the slides for the first:
Tech and Tools of the Globetrotting Freelancer
Have you ever considered striking out on your own and living an exciting life as a freelancer, being your own boss without being geographically tethered? Perhaps you already freelance but want to learn how to hone your craft and reach the next level. In this talk you’ll learn how the clever application of technology can untether you from your location and get you connected and mobile from anywhere in the world, fully ready to rock for your clients. I present analysis of the best cloud-based and local email storage, file transfer and collaboration tools. I’ll teach you how to balance security with convenience and how to build a go-bag full of every gadget and peripheral needed to keep you connected and powered up anywhere in the world on a bootstrapper’s budget. This talk applies to freelancers, contract producers, art production managers, or anyone that collaborates with remote teams. Technology will set you free!
I’ll update this a bit later with links to all of the tools and tech. I just wanted to get this online ASAP!
