Talks I am currently willing to give or have given recently.
What if you don’t want to lean in or become an attrition statistic when you grow up? This talk is a pragmatic look at surviving the center of the leaky, acid filled pipeline delivered to you directly from the trenches.
It can be hard to focus on your love of coding when you are regularly battling invisible issues like insecurity, anxiety, and lack of confidence. In this talk, I'll identify invisible issues programmers struggle with, talk about their impact, discuss personal experiences dealing with them, and share some tools I found useful in fighting back.
Want to start public speaking, but not sure where to start? Sick of seeing the same people speaking all the time? Frustrated with poorly prepared talks? Excited to improve the diversity of voices and ideas on stage? Then this is the talk for you!
