Hi Julia, I'm happy you enjoyed it :) Was there any particular section that resonated with you?

Actually it was a lot of sections because my first job started about 2 weeks later after CodeLand, so I got so much out of it. I didn't think about environment setup until your talk and started looking at my personal setup, the extensions I need and use daily, and wrote everything down to install immediately when I set up my environment with the company laptop.

It also encouraged me to document everything from the beginning, because until then I thought this might be a senior task. When I entered my first project, the onboarding process was quite confusing for me because there was no documentation. So I started writing an onboarding process, which was very well received by the PM and others. When I left the project (3 weeks ago), I also wrote a documentation of everything I had experienced for my front end colleagues to show all possible scenarios related to the project/code and how to solve/avoid/handle them.

These actions left quite an impression.

Has to be @helen's keynote "Musical Lessons for Engineering Teams: Developing a Culture of Feedback Cycles". So cool to enjoy an informative talk and a piano concert all in one β€” definitely check it out if you haven't already!!

My favorite part of Codeland is the diverse community I am seeing here, the lectures and advices from people with more experience in the tech industry and the sense of community during the event.

My favorite part of CodeLand 2022 was when Raymond Chung spoke on "A Programmer's Guide to Mental Health". I feel that in the tech industry mental health is not properly being mentioned or encouraged to be aware of enough. So I'm glad he was able to touch on that and talk about burnout and not let ourselves get to that point.

This is my first time attending CodeLand! 😊 But I was looking at last year's talks and Thuy Doan's "How to provide value from day one of your dev career" and this was a great talk! Highly recommend πŸ’―
