Reprogramming our tech culture
Imagine you could reprogram the tech industry: What would you change so you could enjoy life and work better? There are many behaviors we engage in that help each other, and many that don't. Rockstar worship, tolerating brilliant jerks, and working excessive hours are examples we could do without. In this talk attendees will learn about practical ways they can help reshape our industry to promote kindness and positive collaboration, to reprogram it in a positive way. Topics covered include being careful about conference talks and keynote selection, setting reasonable work expectations, and creating a vibrant inclusive community.
