I was honoured to speak on a panel of women talking about their experiences in tech at this weekend’s Hackapalooza, put on by Ladies Learning Code.

Things discussed: quitting your day job, the tech industry is inspiring and ridiculous, 20 hour work days, 12 hours days learning code, imposter syndrome, the thrill of making things, the necessity of Googling, how everything in your career path will always help you in whatever you do next (there are no wrong turns), cosplay, celebrating paying taxes (as in “Yes! I’ve made enough to have to pay GST!”) and how to find balance.
