Free as the Bird presentation on freelancing at Danish Computer world Expo

freelance presentation imageI was happy to be included as a speaker at Computer World Expo 2013. Computer World Expo is the biggest computer event in Denmark this year. It was really nice to be invited to talk about being a freelancer.

It is not often that I get to talk about the role as a freelancer. But once I tried to drill more in to the content it was much more interesting and I found that I had a lot to say. Way too much to say in the time allocated.

I had to focus my presentation on one area around the motivation for becoming a freelancer. It was quite interesting to find the best ideas to put into the presentational. I think I did a good job on telling some of the good and bad things around being a freelancer in the IT world. I could tell it based on just SAP or even more precise around SAP Process Integration. But it would not fit with the audience.

 

After the talk I meet with 3 other SAP consultants, so even it was not specific a SAP conference there was some SAP consultants to talk with. There was also Microsoft developers and project managers how found the presentation interesting and I got to talk with around the topic.

 

The key topics were covered in an article in Computer World around how to get started as a freelancer.

 

Since the limited time it was not all the do’s and don’ts I could spend time on. So I focus the presentation on motivation on why being a freelancer is great. I therefore created a check list with all the things that you must know. I would highly recommend you to go thru this list if you are considering being a freelancer.

Presentation on Easy documentation in Belgium

I will be hosting a presentation on how to do easy documentation in Belgium. SAPience.be the Belgian SAP User Group is having a meeting on the 29 September 2011. It is the day just after the Global Special Interest Group for SAP PI is having their meeting. It is nice to be able to combine two events with each other.

The agenda can be found at

http://www.sapience.be/event/sapiencebe-technology-commission-topic-pi

I’ll be talking about how to document SAP PI scenarios and message mappings.

I hope to see you in Belgium otherwise; we may meet in Teched in Madrid.
