Free the with Matthew Setter

Come listen to this warm and friendly chat with Andreas Heigl about how to be a better public speaker, why some developers only work "9-to-5", and what it was like taking over an established user group (phpugffm).

Show Notes

It was a pleasure to sit down and chat with Andreas. He shared what it was like taking over phpugffm (the PHP user group in Frankfurt, Germany), why he believes some devs aren't involved in user groups, how to become a better public speaker, and an excellent form of development: Documentation-driven Development.

Some key takeaways are:
  • When you lose your place while speaking, calm yourself, and collect your thoughts, then pick up where you left off.
  • Enthusiasm makes talks lively and interesting.
  • Speaking is a matter of practice and wanting to communicate and impart something to others.
