Sharing Knowledge - WordCamp Cape Town Edition

The open source community works because of the amount of knowledge that is shared between people. Although everyone has knowledge and experiences to share, many do not feel they have anything worthy of saying.

In this talk, you will learn that everyone has something to share, how to generate talk topics based on conversations you have every day with your peers, and discuss the different methods of sharing – not all of it is on a stage.
