Hi, I'm Jessica.
I am a software developer, international speaker & avid learner. Topics that I am interested in include community building, monitoring and continuous improvement of systems. I'm also a Director and co-founder of DDD East Midlands, a technology conference which will take place in 2019.
Before switching to technology, I spent a previous life as a neuroscientist. I'm easily bribed with coffee & I love meeting people and hearing all about their experiences in technology.
Opinions are my own and not the views of my employer.
Our tech community is full of bright and interesting people, each with their unique experiences and points of view. Each and every person has something they can share that some of us would benefit from. You are one of these people. But how do you conquer that first step to submitting a talk, and what’s in it for you?
Let us be your guides through the challenging lands of talk submissions. From picking a topic to structuring the talk summary that will inspire and blow minds and submitting it. Finally, we’ll talk through why you should even think about speaking - it’s a scary thing to do, is it worth it?
By the end of this talk, you’ll not only be ready to inspire with your words but feel fully prepared to take on the world.
