Women Level Up

Diversity in Tech: Women Level Up is a meetup aimed at empowering software engineers and web developers who identify as female, non-binary, and/or are from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, networking, and mentorship. While there is a plethora of amazing tech meetups available, we noticed a need for something geared towards people who identify as mid-level or have some experience already working as a programmer.

Maybe you graduated from a bootcamp a few years ago and have already had a couple jobs. Maybe you’ve been junior awhile and want to be mid-level. Maybe you’re mid-level and want to be senior. Maybe you want to be the next team lead. We want to help you get there! We intend to build out the technical component of our meetup to really challenge you and level up your skills.

Have you ever asked someone to do something, and they hear the exact opposite?

Why do miscommunications happen? Does knowing why matter? And more importantly, how do you achieve your original desired request?

If you want to learn more ways to influence those around you, this talk is for you! You’ll learn about different causes for failed communications, and different workarounds you can apply for different failure modes. Come to this talk to add another tool to your communications toolbox.

Reducing Enumerable - An Illustrated Adventure
Brandon Weaver || Platform Engineer, Square
close Reducing Enumerable - An Illustrated Adventure

Meet Red. Red is a reducing lemur, and he loves to sum things using the reduce method. The problem is, with Ruby 2.4+ and the sum method he's starting to think reduce isn't that useful anymore. Distraught, Red asks his master for advice, and she sends him off on a grand journey to learn the true powers of the reduce method by reimplementing various methods from Enumerable.

Join Red on an illustrated adventure through the land of Enumerable as he learns to map, select, find, and more using his trusty reduce.

If you're new to Ruby and Functional Programming, this is the talk for you.
