I have always had an interest in teaching, and I believe that conference presentations are one of the best ways to teach in a professional setting.
I believe that speakers should be part of the conference as well as presenting talks. A lot of the value in conferences comes from the hallways. If I speak at your conference, I will also attend.
I am interested in speaking on the following topics:
Read the Docs & Sphinx
Django & Python
Leading Open Source Projects
If you would like me to speak at your event, feel free to email me
Here are a few videos of my previous talks.
GitHub webcast: Using GitHub for documentation¶
Was featured on a GitHub webcast talking about using GitHub for documentation. You can see more information and get the video here:
How GitHub Uses GitHub - Writing documentation for your project from GitHub on Vimeo.
Introduction to Sphinx & Read the Docs - Djangocon 2015¶
My thoughts on why Documentation is important, how Sphinx thinks about documentation, and how to use it well.
Documentation as Empathy - Open Source & Feelings¶
My thoughts on how Documentation plays a role in the open source world.
Documentation as Empathy - Django Birthday¶
This talk tells the story of how Documentation was a large part of my entry into the tech world. I relate this to other folks who are trying to get into the tech world, and how we need to continue to improve documentation to keep them in the industry.
