Speaker’s Story: Mike Miles, Podcaster Focused on the Nontechnical Side of TechnologySpeaker's Story
Technology conference speakers come from a wide range of backgrounds, experience levels, and interests. At CFP Land, we highlight different speakers every week in our Speaker’s Story blog posts.
Like many speakers I’ve interviewed, Mike Miles understands that working in technology is about much more than just writing code. While he has done plenty of that, Mike started speaking to raise his confidence and force himself to learn something new. Now, in addition to speaking at dozens of conferences, Mike hosts a podcast called Developing Up, which covers a wide range of non-technical topics for software developers. We spoke about some of the advantages of public speaking for your career on the show, but in this interview, Mike goes into some of his tips and the opportunities that speaking has afforded him as well.
