Keynote: From Prison to Python


What is the free software and broader tech community's role in criminal justice reform?

Sha Wallace-Stepter learned how to program in prison, while serving a life sentence for assault with a firearm. He'll share how technology and entrepreneurship shaped his experience growing up in the prison system and eventually getting out.

Continuing on the stage set by Sha Wallace-Stepter's personal experience with the prison system, Jessica McKellar lays out concrete actions we can take as individuals, technologists, and employers to create meaningful impact on this unjust system together.
