RefreshPDX - Side Projects That Ship

ISITE Design
2030 NW Pettygrove Street
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



Presentation Abstract

Starting a side project is easy. Finishing one? That’s a whole lot tougher. Is there a secret to being prolific part-time? What separates the countless projects languishing on hard drives from the few that see the light of day?

Join Tyler Sticka (Cloud Four designer/developer and creator of numerous side projects) for a discussion on how to identify your best ideas, focus on the right goals, eliminate cruft and maintain your interest level so you can complete your labor of love without losing sleep, your job or your mind.
