I was recently recommended as a pinch-hitter keynote speaker for a Linux conference by a friend who wasn’t going to be able to present due to a scheduling conflict. She put me in touch with the conference organizers, and they reached out to me with the exciting email subject “We want YOU to keynote [conference name]!!”
The internet is fucking amazing. I’m sure you already knew that, but the gravity of just how fucking awesome it is smacked me across the face this week in a way it hasn’t in a long time.
This is the first of what I hope will be a recurring feature. Once a week, I will write a blog post that covers things I’ve learned and links I’ve found. Hopefully it doesn’t suck, and hopefully I can keep up with it.
I am not going to turn this into a rant. I have a lot of strong opinions on the Women in Tech issue, but I’m keeping the scope of this limited to the fact that GitHub now offers a free private repo to women.
