18:45: Talk One: Amelia Cook ( https://twitter.com/ameliacook ), From Anime Passion Project to Tech Career
Get advice on how to build up a personal brand, monetise a passion project and leverage it into a career change - all in less than a year!
We’re crazy excited about this talk - I mean, it’s gonna roam from anime to feminism to community management and personal brands. Seriously, we all need this talk in our lives.
19:10: Talk Two: Sally Shepard ( https://twitter.com/mostgood ), Stop Making Average Apps
If you're only thinking about the average user, you're making an app for no user.
Michael saw a version of this talk at a few weeks ago and was so excited we just knew we had to have Sally come and share it with you all!
19:35: Lightning Talk: Danielle Emma Vass ( https://twitter.com/de_velopment ), All You Need Are Squares and Circles - Teaching People to Code Creatively
How can we help more people enjoy coding, of all ages and all backgrounds. The talk will be around my experience teaching children and adults to code, with practical tips participants can take away and help foster others love for computing!
Teaching is something that all three of us have done in different ways in the last few years and we all agree it has changed us in nothing but good ways. Make teaching one of your new years resolutions after listening to Danielle.
