Alright, self - enough lollygagging around. It's been just about an hour since I sat myself down to write and in that hour, I've successfully perused a few quick YouTube videos, subscribed for a royalty-free music site, and checked Twitter a handful of times.
So! Big news since the cat's now outta the bag: I'm going to be giving my first-ever talk at the CodeLand Conference in July!
I'm seriously so excited! I posted back at the beginning of April about submitting a proposal to this conference - and I feel so great to have gotten the spot. I can't wait.
Here's the Alex from April 1:
Today's been a much slower day, and it's really felt good! Last night, I'm proud to have sent off my finished application to give a talk at this year's virtual CodeLand Conference! I've never submitted a proposal for a conference CFP, and I can gladly say that I've crossed that one off my coding-journey bucketlist.
Regardless of the outcome, I'm happy to have put my foot forward, and I'm confident I'll give a talk about coding at some point in the next few months, whatever that may look like!
My talk, titled Being Utterly Fearless in Your Pursuit of Learning to Code, will mostly be about my journey and my five greatest tips for others who've ventured into the unknown to pursue learning to code and transitioning their careers.
Can't wait to share! Want to attend the conference? Head over here >>
