Talks

Public speaking, especially on technical topics, can be a challenge – it takes a lot of prep, even for seasoned folks. But speaking is also an incredible opportunity to widen one’s horizons, share passion and geek out with fellow developers. We all have much to learn from each other as we try to improve our craft.

This page is a humble attempt to keep track of conferences/meetups/user groups/other events where I have spoken in the last couple of years .. appreciate any feedback on my talks if you have attended.
