A weekly round up of blog posts I've been reading
If you have been anywhere near tech social media this week, you would probably have seen the DevTernity fiasco unfold: A gripping drama that includes a 4-year-old fake catfish profile, made-up women and (almost) every speaker cancelling. The organiser claimed he can’t find women in tech to speak at conferences. I have spoken at tech conferences amongst a ton of brilliant women; I’m surprised, but also not really, that people are still using that excuse.
Also, a stark reminder to speakers to check the lineup: if everyone looks the same on the speakers page, then there is a problem.
Props to Gergely Orosz (who runs the Pragmatic Engineer newsletter) for being the whistleblower.
Enjoy this week’s posts, and Happy Friday.
