I’ve presented this at two different conferences and meetups, and here are the YouTube videos. You can see how the presentation evolved as my thoughts clarified and as I continued to practice. This is one way to reach expertise – to keep doing a thing, and to iterate based on feedback. You can use those tools for your projects.

Common Sense Career Transitions at Black Lodge Research meetup (you’ll have to rewind for some reason, I’ve tried URL hacking YouTube like crazy and this is just what you get for some reason, apologies!):

Common Sense Career Transitions at LinuxFestNW:

I’ve noticed a tendency on my part to write nearly everything down. I also enjoy benignly meddling in other people’s affairs, especially when people find themselves encountering issues I’m passionate about. Issues such as:

  • breaking down barriers for women and BIPOC entering, and succeeding in, technology
  • early- and mid-career growth
  • helping set a career path & direction based on a person’s own interests and desires

We’ll see if this theme sticks, or if it grows in some direction I can’t anticipate yet. In the meantime, welcome to my first post.
