Just a quick announcement to say that the folks at Rebuild gave me the amazing opportunity to come and speak at their conference.
The conference will take place on April 18th in Indianapolis, and I’ll be speaking about (what else!) Meteor.
This is going to be my first time ever speaking at a big design conference like this. In fact, it’s also going to be my first time attending a design conference.
I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous at the idea of speaking in front of a couple hundred people. I’m not a great speaker, and my topic won’t be particularly fun (after all, it’s coding).
But there’s two reasons why I wanted to do this: first, I won’t know if I like public speaking until I try it. Who knows, maybe it won’t be a total disaster.
But the more important reason is that I honestly believe that Meteor is simple enough that you can gain a decent understanding of its main concepts in 40 minutes.
So hopefully, no matter how bad my presentation skills are, the audience will still be able to come away having learned something. And after all, isn’t that why you go to a conference in the first place?
P.S. I will drop by San Francisco on my way back for 10 days or so. I feel like I’m spending half my time there these days, but then again that city seems to have a never-ending supply of awesome people to meet!
