Do you love technology? Have you ever gotten so involved in a technology conversation that you've wanted to say, "let me just demonstrate this to you on my laptop". Or have you gotten a confused sideways look with raised eyebrows when you've told someone that you're a Technology Evangelist?
Global Network of Technology Evangelists (GNoTE)'s goal is to 'evangelize evangelism'. GNoTE was founded to help evangelists be more successful, and to foster the concept of evangelism in the industry and academia worldwide. The title "Technology Evangelist" was first coined by Guy Kawasaki while working for Apple Computer in the late 1980s. The Apple platform has grown and flourished to become one of the biggest brands in history, thanks to Guy's efforts. A company's objectives are to grow, succeed and maintain profitability. An evangelist's role within the company is to cultivate mindshare and spread the word about the company's products.
On December 4th SDForum is pleased to present this exceptional program dedicated to "Everything Evangelist" and launch GNoTE.
