Last week I gave a talk about my experience as a freelancer at the Per Scholas Lunch & Learn, hosted by the New York Tech Council. Per Scholas is a non-profit that provides IT training and job placement for people in low-income communities.
Last week I participated in the 2014 Startup Bus from NYC to San Antonio, then to Austin for SXSW. The Startup Bus is a 72hr hackathon where 30 people on a bus form teams and create, develop, and pitch a startup while on the bus. It was quite an experience, to say the least! I am so excited to have worked with such talented people and am looking forward to maintaining these new connections.
I gave a presentation on Child Themes at the NYC WordPress Meet Up – I think it went well! There’s the video. Check the the slides here. (Slides created with reveal.js. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the developers on that one – what a fun tool!)
