Figure 7.7 A search of groups on "iPhone apps" shows 51 groups.

If you haven't signed up for LinkedIn you should. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your developer skills or marketing skills and to showcase your apps with a professional community. It will take you about half an hour to do a really nice job of listing all your skills and attributes for this site. After you have registered, you can locate and join iPhone app groups that allow you to contribute your expertise and inform people of your apps and their availability.

LinkedIn's advanced search functionality also lets you locate people, groups, or companies that you may have an interest in contacting. For example, you can search on "iPhone app developers," and LinkedIn will respond with a list of more than 3,000 developers! Perhaps you are looking for another developer to team on a project; this is a great site for doing that.

B Note

It will take some time for you to build up your connections to other people. Many on LinkedIn have earned a badge of respect with more than 500 connections. That's a nice network to have when you are looking for development opportunities or any type of work. It's also a great network to post a comment to the "What are you working on?" link.
