Sometimes I say things in front of other people. Here's some of those times:
Looking for a job while looking after yourself· 📍 Women in Tech Nottingham
We put on a hiring themed event at WiT Notts February, so I decided to share my experiences from my last job search, and the things I found useful when looking for a job while tired and stressed.
Women in Tech: what do we even do?· 📍 DevOps Notts
I was invited by the lovely DevOps Notts organisers to speak at their Women in Tech event, so I decided to cover what it is that I do day to day: the parts that are the same as any other developer, and then all the extra things I do because of who I am. This was my first time speaking at an online event and I found it hard!
How to train your impostor· 📍 NDC London
I originally wrote this talk for an internal event at Capital One, and I had quite a few messages from folks saying it really reasonated with them, so I decided to submit it to an event with a wider audience.
Test yourself before you wreck yourself· 📍 Women in Tech Nottingham
I was kindly invited to speak at WiT - before becoming an organiser - and I just couldn't pass on the opportunity to talk about testing web applications. I love testing and think it's so important, so I really enjoyed being able to go over some of the ways you can effectively test your app.
Panic Driven Development· 📍 DevOpsDays London 2019
This was my very first conference talk, so I thought starting with a short talk was the safest choice, but as it turns out ignite talks are actually really nerve wracking! The slides auto advance every 15 seconds, so you need to be on top of your material 🔥 I had a great time though, and everyone at the event was so lovely.
DevOps vs SRE· 📍 Notts IoT
This was my first ever talk! I'd been reading a bunch about DevOps and SRE at the time, so I gave a little lightning talk about it. I was so incredibly nervous, but the audience was really lovely and welcoming, so I had a great first experience.
