Recap: Sourcecon Fall 2015 Dallas

Yesterday I was on a flight a day early to Sourcecon Spring 2016 in Orlando and realized I never wrote about Sourcecon Fall 2015 in Dallas. Before I recap Dallas I am going to give some advice to those who are attending Sourcecon for the first time including a number of friends and colleagues from Minnesota.

DO NOT sit next to your coworkers… you see them every day. Sit next to, have dinner with and go to Happy Hour with people you do not know

DO follow along with #Sourcecon on Twitter

JOIN the Sourcecon Group On Facebook

DO say hey to those LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram friends you have not met in real life

DO NOT do the day job while at the event. You or your company spent a lot of $$$... soak it all in

DO have conversations like, “This is what I am doing to find (fill in the blank) how do you do it?” Peer sharing is easy at this event

DO ask “that question” during a session you are dying to ask but are too afraid to

DO have a good time

DO NOT have too a good a time :)

Trend: More IT Pros Quitting Their Jobs

Recruiting… recruiting… recruiting…

It’s all everyone in my world talks about.

And I get it.

But once every six months or so I write a post here about retention… a reminder that we’re all recruiting IT pros and they have to come from somewhere… they don’t grow on trees.

A portion of them can be found:

- as recent college or coding school grads

- as they convert from contracting and consulting to full time status

- as they relocate to the area

Most of them of are already working at another company and whether they find us through job posts, our career page, referrals, networking or we are recruiting them…. they are moving around in larger numbers than a year ago.

You hear it at user groups (from Dev’s), a frequent topic during Twin Cities Startup Week (CIO’s, Recruiters and Dev’s) and again this past weekend at Twin Cities Code Camp (from Dev’s).
