One of the things I’m enjoying most in my career switch from academia into tech is the vibrant collaborative culture in tech, expressed in the highest concentration at meetups and conferences. I love sharing what I’ve learned on the job and learning complementary lessons from others’ experiences, and I’m deeply impressed, humbled, and inspired by all the speakers who put extensive amounts of time into communicating subtle or difficult or often-overlooked concepts for the benefit of all. 👏
I’ve also had the honor of taking the stage myself to present on a few topics:
- September 1st, 2017, I presented Escaping the diving bell (slides) at NightlyBuild in Cologne, Germany. This conference—true to its name—starts in the evening and runs until about midnight 🕛. Great for night 🦉s!
- In August 2017, I presented React-ing htmlFor=empathy (video) at React Rally in Salt Lake City, Utah, a stellar React conference that I’ve attended every year it’s been run. The slides for this talk are also available online.
- In October 2016, I presented High-stakes React (slides) at ReactNL in Amsterdam.
- In August 2015, I presented Flux for Data Visualization: A Preliminary Manifesto (slides) at React Rally. The video of this talk is available on YouTube.
- In December 2014, I presented “tideline (and zipline)” at the monthly Oakland meetup for the Bay Area D3 User Group.
Feel free to get in touch if you’re organizing a conference or other event and are interested in having me as a speaker.
