    I'd be interested in the salary comp survey. I know what I've seen but this kind of verification would be cool

    Hi, can someone connect me to the right person. While at the meetup someone mentioned the availability of a salary comparison sheet for Tampa Bay area tech companies.
    I'd like to get my hands on that. Please.

    Fantastic presentation! I feel like I manage self-promotion and qualifying my skill sets in the office pretty well but could do a much better job of putting myself out to the public.
