Learn & Share

I believe teaching is a great way to learn. I try and make a talk out of any topic I've recently invested time in. I've personally acquired several skills in my career through tech talks and local meetup groups. I have a strong sense of giving back to the community. Tech talks are one of the ways I like to contribute.

Iterate

I like to iterate on my talks. The first version is an MVP and I usually deliver that to a smaller audience. The Q&A session is valuable feedback on gaps or things I could have explained better. I build these answers into the talk for the next revision. I've found that by the third time I deliver a talk I have a pretty tight presentation.
