one of the things I've enjoyed most in my career switch from academia into tech is the vibrant collaborative culture in tech, expressed in a high concentration at meetups and conferences where knowledge is freely (and often entertainingly!) shared.
over the years, I've been 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 too love sharing what I've learned on the job or on the side—feel free to get in touch if you'd like to book me for your conference.
I've had the honor of taking the stage at the following events:
on December 5th, 2019, I presented escaping flatland: a romance of data science in the browser (video) in Paris, France; the slides are also online.
on June 20th, 2019, I presented "Data science in the browser: DX & UX" at DinosaurJS in Denver, Colorado
on June 8th, 2019, I presented "Developers, go the f*ck to sleep" at self.conference in Detroit, Michigan
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 August 2015, I presented Flux for Data Visualization: A Preliminary Manifesto (slides) at React Rally; the video of this talk is available on YouTube
