That's the question I first asked when someone told me about "indieconf". I wasn't used to the jargon of the geeks and web networkers. An "indie" is an independent professional, someone in business for themselves. Oh.
I'm an "indie"? Yes. I didn't know that.
So what is this "indieconf" conference - looks like its only for web geeks. No, its not?
The first time I went, I really wondered about that. I spent the day enjoying amazing workshops about legal stuff, marketing stuff, publishing stuff, business stuff, everything but geek stuff. Oh, that was a surprise! Well yes there was one code workshop I attended. But I could have gone to another business or publishing workshop.
The stuff for web developers was minimal actually, as the conference is really for the independent business professional to learn how to work on all the business end of their business. There are code conferences for the geeks and plenty of them but that was not Michael Kimsal's vision. It is aimed at the web developers and any other professionals. It is intended to help people figure out how to make a viable business when they want to work on their own as a professional.
The first time I went, the conference blew me away, created a dream for my business, and I've been living and building that dream ever since and on into the future . . . it all began with "indieconf".
