In this keynote for CodeLand 2021, I tell the story of my journey as a coder and drag performer who is committed to making everyone feel that they belong in the tech industry. My goal with this talk is to reach early-career developers who might be doubting their own abilities and validity in this field. You can learn to code, become a software developer, and have a great time doing it!
- Combining your passion with code
- A beginner friendly data structures lesson
- One developer's path to success as an engineer and finding community in the tech space
🌈 After I present, please leave your thoughts, comments, and questions about my keynote in the comments below!
Anna Lytical is a Developer Experience Engineer at Google and a coding drag performer who creates fun and educational coding content to engage a early-career developer audience on TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and beyond.
This keynote will be presented as part of CodeLand 2021 on September 23. After the talk is streamed as part of the conference, it will be added to this post as a recorded video along with the slides.
