SINFO 24

SINFO 24

Last week I flew to Lisbon, Portugal to the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) to speak and attend SINFO 24, a week-long, non-profit conference run by IST students for IST students, consisting of an employer expo, workshops, and keynotes.

This post is a consummate love letter to SINFO 24 and its coordinators starting with some quick facts about why I loved SINFO so much.

DevFest MN 2017

DevFest MN 2017

This last weekend I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at DevFest MN for the first time. There was a fantastic line-up of speakers in a great venue and a great turnout.

I gave a presentation called "Cool ConstraintLayout" in which I discussed some of my favorite features currently available in ConstraintLayout.

Droidcon Italy 2016

Droidcon Italy 2016

On April 7th and 8th, I attended and spoke at Droidcon Italy 2016 in lovely Torino, Italy. For me Torino was both a first time in Italy and a first European Droidcon.

The content was fantastic with a few common threads running through different sessions. One of these threads was the role of the developer in UX. By far the best thing that I took home from Torino is an empowering feeling that developers and designers share equal and important roles in building UX.
