TechMentor Keynote: How to Succeed In IT (Or At Least How I Succeeded in IT)


8:00am - 9:00am

Level: Everyone

Mark Minasi

IT Consultant, Author, Speaker


In November of 1973, Mark Minasi got his first programming lesson. It wasn't long after that that he started making money and giving advice about computers, and that led to 40-plus books, thousands of articles, about a hundred thousand attendees to his classes and talks, and millions of readers. This year, however, he's calling it quits… almost. Mark rounds out a 44-year career by opening November’s TechMentor Orlando with a final keynote filled with stories, a lot of laughs, and possibly even a couple of useful bits of advice. What can IT pros learn from invertebrates? Why are IT pros largely Alzheimer's-free? How are bugs the key to finding the best jobs in IT? Find out when one of the industry's most-loved speakers delivers his fast-paced, funny, and provocative "farewell to the troops!"
