    Topic:  Improving Your Technical Portfolio 

    Synopsis: Much like a stock portfolio, one’s technological skills and knowledge should be well managed. With a rapidly changing market it’s imperative to keep your portfolio diverse and updated regularly. However, expanding one’s portfolio has many obstacles such as self-motivation and finding reliable avenues for growth.

    In this session, Dustin and Robert will address each of those obstacles and how to overcome them. By setting achievable goals, finding avenues to learn and applying what you learned on projects, your technical portfolio will expand in no time.   


    1. What a technical portfolio is.

    2. Setting goals to build one’s technical portfolio.

    3. Finding technical resources and avenues to achieve goals.

    4. Applying your knowledge and maintaining your portfolio.
