Full Stack Developers, Unicorns, and Other Mythical Creatures

Main Presentation: Full Stack Development

Unicorns! Unicorns everywhere! Let's try to understand what full stack developers are, where they live, what they eat and how you can train your own Pokémons to evolve and become this creature of legend. We'll figure out if it's really possible to be a full stack developer, what qualities we're (really) looking for when there's a opening for a position like that and how we could all benefit from at least trying to become full stack developers.

Lightning Talk: Staging a Comeback

After finding myself in a job I hated and seeing my colleagues struggle to find work in a difficult economy, I decided to leave the industry to run my own business. Several years later, my skills woefully stale, I sold the business and began looking for a job. I'll share the highlights of my story and strategies that helped in finding work and coming back to a career I love.

    This is a question on my mind lately, but sadly I am still in Arkansas. Nine weeks to go. Yay.
