North Dallas: Casual Code & Connect + Lightning Talk by Tiffany Thompson

= How I Conquer Imposter Syndrome = The act of getting in to a new industry and starting a new position within that industry are tough! Or how about the stress and anxiety of having to learn a new language or take on a new project? Mix that with feeling all types of doubt and not being sure of yourself and you've got imposter syndrome There are many things that go along with imposter syndrome including fear, doubt, anxiety. I want to share with you my experiences with imposter syndrome and tips that can hopefully help you manage your imposter syndrome. = About the Speaker = My journey into tech is long story, let’s just say it took me forever and a bootcamp to finally land a position within the industry about five years after I wanted to. I am currently a Software Engineer at Musicbed, a music licensing company. I work on the back end of the application utilizing PHP, Laraval and MySql. I enjoy learning more about videography, making youtube videos and spreading my knowledge to others in the tech industry, going to conferences, watching various movie genres on Netflix, spending time with my family and laughing at my bad jokes :) = Casual Code & Connect = Join us for a night of casual coding and networking! Come work on a project, do some exercises or tutorials, pair program, or absorb by osmosis. Beverages (i.e. coffee, water, soda) will be provided but feel free to bring something to share, or food for yourself! All levels of expertise are welcome and we strongly encourage you to ask questions, exchange ideas, talk about what you want to learn. We will start the Meetup with introductions and some lightning talks! If you're interested in giving a lightning talk, prepare 5 minutes of material and we'll put you "on stage." Remember that the primary purpose of these talks is to get practice speaking in front of an audience, and to receive candid feedback from peers! Happy Coding (: By coming to Casual Code and Connect you are agreeing to our Code of Conduct. (https://github.com/WomenWhoCode/guidelines-resources/blob/master/code_of_conduct.md).

[North Dallas] Web Accessibility

Lifeblue

= Web Accessibility = As developers it's easy to obsess over your seemingly flawless project that has perfect hover states, synergistic colors, gorgeous fonts, readable code with all tabs and no spaces, and responsive layouts that would make the angels weep... but what's not often considered is that your beautiful, digital information may be completely inaccessible to a decent percentage of your audience. Permanent or temporary cognitive or physical impairments should not hinder anyone from obtaining access to the online digital world. Let's explore some ways that we can ensure that our information is accessible by the widest audience possible! = About the Speaker = Nicole Oakes is a Front End Developer at Lifeblue in North Dallas with a degree in Computer Information Systems and over 9 years of experience in Web Development and UX Design. She enjoys playing strategic board games, spending time with her husband and toddler boy, teaching children to code, and telling a good "mom joke".
