But seriously, though?
I have been writing software for 15 years. But I have done other things, too. I’ve been a fiction writer, an improv comedian, a conference speaker, a twitter sh*tposter, and a long, long time ago, a teenage poet.
I love the tech community, but sometimes as a group we tend to be a little narrow-minded. When you get to know people, turns out so many of us have different diverse backgrounds, and when I find out I want to shake them and ask: “Why didn’t you tell me you went to clown school? That is so cool!”
I want to talk about how we can become better as engineers, as teams, and as an community, by openly being our full, weird selves, and accepting others for being theirs.
