I am starting a new role with a new company soon and I was looking for all the ways possible to make a difference from day one. And your talk has brought some attention to the smallest things we can be attentive to when starting a new role. It's a good list to keep an eye on!

I really enjoyed @clearlythuydoan 's talk and actually really needed to hear it. I'm in my first year out after getting my bachelor's and have felt pretty lost or like I didn't belong at different points. It was an important reminder that I'm valid and did the work to be here as well as helping me figure out how to best approach growing my skillset!

There was a lot of them I liked and all of them were important for me. I learned something from each of them and I really appreciate it. . If I have to mention one I will say Tracy Berng-Fulton.

I loved Josephine's talk on web accessibility. As a coder who just started this month learning HTML and CSS, I did not realize the huge need to master these two languages very well when all of my friends are doing Phython, R, SQL, Ruby on Rails, Angular, Vue, etc. (things I have yet to explore). So it was very motivational for me :).

It was mind blowing to see the drop down options for color blindness, sunlight, complete blindness etc. I never really thought about the need for this!

This is the hardest part of CodeLand 2021...because they were all great talks!
I really enjoyed Tracy's talk and look forward to using my non-dev work as a superpower! :)
It's really overwhelming to start out in tech and feel like you have nothing to bring to the table as a new developer who is still learning everything dev. Tracy re-instilled my confidence to use past skills and display them as superpowers!

Anna Lytical was very fun but everyone was great. The lightning talk by Jonan was also great info and a relief to hear. It's hard not to be hard on myself on this journey.

My favourite thing about the responses to this question is how different talks spoke differently to different people. I like to think that's the sign of a good conference 😁
