As well as organising and speaking at my local Ruby user group I occasionally speak at conferences on software development. Below are my main conference talks.
A Branch in Time (a story about revision histories)
A talk about software maintainability and the power of our revision histories. I gave this talk at Brighton Ruby and RubyConf in 2018 as well as RubyConf AU in 2019.
Bootstrapping a Startup as a Developer
A cautionary tale where I share my experiences trying to bootstrap a startup as a solo developer. I gave this talk at Scottish Ruby and Nordic Ruby in 2013.
