Daniel Haight – Picking Locks
How to steal things (depending on your moral compass).
A broad look at different types of locks, how they work and how you might open then without a key.
Claudia Colvin – The Freddie Mercury Principle (aka How to Start and Commit to a Side Project)
Common side-project problems: I have so many ideas, which one should I pick? I’ve picked an idea, how can I push it forward? Will I have enough time? I’ve started a side project but it’s hard, when do I know when I should stop? This talk will share a personal side-project story, from ideation to launch to keeping it going, and will give you practical advice and hopefully inspiration to start a side project of your own.
Olga Dominguez – I’m quitting engineering: An exit interview
Let’s be honest, there are many broken steps on the engineering path and we need to talk about them clearly and bluntly, there’s never a better moment than in an exit interview. I will review all the things that have gone through during my career and how things could have been amazing, from interview to leaving a job, honestly, I’ve got nothing to lose
We understand that some people have other commitments, and cannot spend the whole evening with us. Because of this we start early, try to run very close to time, and we do not take questions after the talks. This allows everyone to benefit from the main part of the evening, and then, if you are able, you can join us after for the social where typically some, if not all, of the speakers will be on hand.
