evoHaX - Hack to change lives!

This is such a great hackathon, and I'm really pleased to be part of it again. evoHaX is all about accessible technology, and this year's theme is web accessibility. On Friday night, I'll moderate a panel on "Accessibility in the Contemporary World of Technology". On Sunday, I'll get to judge the hackathon projects. Last year's work was wildly insightful and innovative, so I'm extra excited this year. Grab your panel tickets here, or get more information on the hackathon here.

The Fraud Police Are Coming: A DjangoCon US talk

I am thrilled that Amanda Clark and I get to reprise our imposter syndrome talk for the international DjangoCon US. It has really evolved as we've learned more about the topic and ourselves. This talk will only be open to DjangoCon attendees, but if you're able to attend the conference, it looks like a fantastic one. The talk lineup is fantastic! You can grab tickets at their website.
