Topics discussed at the Web Geek Meetup on Nov 19th

I had a really great time last night at the Monte Vista Fire Station (Gruet). Got to talk to a lot of people that I don't get a chance to meet in my day to day life. There are a few subjects here that I would love to expand on, or see other people expand on themselves.
And in no Particular Order
  • Usefulness of LinkedIn
  • CMS headaches
  • Plone, Drupal, Oh My!
  • Should experience be taken into consideration as a condition of computer related certifications
  • Understanding of programming best practices as a condition of employment
  • Hit-By-A-Bus Problem solved by leaving the company
  • Starting from a website and ending up as a business and marketing consultant
  • Javascript sucks, JQuery rocks
  • Being in a Rock band is like being in a relationship. You have to like the people
  • XMPP Really Friggen Rocks!
  • Trust of the website audience
  • Advertising on DCF
  • The horrors of Cut and Paste Programmers *shiver*

Nice wrap-up! It's incredibly useful to share links, ideas, etc. from those gatherings.

Personally, though connect with a few dozen people on LinkedIn, I haven't yet seen any tangible benefit. Have you ever seen anyone attempt to quantify the benefit for users?
