Yesterday I gave the closing keynote at PyTennessee. In it, I referred to eleven great talks that informed my own work. Without the honesty, bravery, and authenticity of these folks, my talk would not have been what it was.
If you can make the time, I highly recommend the following presentations:
- Ola Sendecka’s beautifully-illustrated keynote “Into the rabbit hole” from DjangoCon Europe 2015
- Tracy Osborn’s 2015 ELA Conf talk about the time she secured a 55% raise
- Doug Hellmann’s 2015 PyOhio talk, “How I built a power debugger out of the standard library and things I found on the internet”
- Sharon Steed on “How to talk to humans” from DjangoCon US 2015
- Ed Finkler’s 2015 PyTennessee keynote, “Stronger than Fear: Mental Health in the Dev Community”
- K Lars Lohn’s 2015 PyOhio keynote, “The Well-Tempered API”
- Baptiste Mispelon’s “Adventures in Djangoland” keynote from DjangoCon Europe 2015
- Jacob Kaplan-Moss, a self-described “mediocre programmer”, gives a PyCon keynote
- Russell Keith-Magee delivers “I am a doctor” at DjangoCon US 2015
- Žan Anderle’s “Mistakes & lessons in developing UX” at DjangoCon Europe 2015
- Lacey Williams Henschel’s PyLadiesRemote presentation, January 2016: “Your First Conference Proposal!”
Thanks for your important work!
PS: I’m not sure my PyTennessee talk was recorded, but you can watch a much shorter, earlier, and more light-hearted version of some of the ideas covered here, or catch me at PyCon or OSCON (Austin) this year. ❤
