Speaking Engagements

One of the things that I love most about working in tech is the chances I get to speak in public and share some of the knowledge I've somehow managed to accumulate (even, sometimes, about work that I've actually done myself!)

For someone who enjoys speaking in public, I find it hard to actually promote the fact that I'll be in places, but some friends have recently asked when and where I'll be, so without further ado here are my next confirmed appearances:

7th-10th April: DroidCon, Berlin
23rd-24th April: GTAC, NY
2nd May: Facebook Mobile Developer Conference (a brief stint in London!)
10th-12th June: Selenium Conf (tickets on sale!) (It looks like it'll be great fun!)

For DroidCon, GTAC and the Facebook MobDevConf, I'll be talking about various aspects of my day job at Facebook, though each conference, because of their different focuses, will get to hear about different parts of it!

Selenium Conf is something that I always look forward to. It's a great chance to meet the people who are using the tool that has meant so much to my professional career, and it's also a fantastic opportunity to meet up with the rest of the selenium developer team and buy them a steak dinner. We've yet to have a veggie join us as a core team member, but we'll figure out a suitable way to reward their efforts too one day! If you're interested in becoming that first vegetarian contributor, then you can always start by contributing some code!

I've also recently become Facebook's W3C AC representative, and will be attending the TPAC in November in China.
