    More and more, employers are looking at your social media presence during the recruitment process. A tool I've found has been AMAZING in increasing my Twitter followers is Slingbot (http://www.slingbot.co/).

    It "automates engagement" by helping you "follow" other users based on keywords. This increases exposure to likeminded individuals and (hopefully) increases your follower count (with real followers!).

    We know that for small teams, finding someone you actually want to work with is important. Unlike normal job boards, we're focused on the culture/personality side of things.

    WOW! While there might have been too many talks in one meetup - they were all freaking amazing. I left with several action items. Thanks for putting this together - these were all conference quality talks by experts in their fields.
