I’m attending the my first Strange Loop conference this year in St. Louis, MO. The opportunity is kind of a big deal and I owe it all to the conference organizers and sponsors for allowing me to attend as a diversity scholar.
I’ve taken a few glances at the conference schedule and it’s been hard to decide which topics I want to check out. When I go to conferences, I always have an internal debate on whether I should go to a talk I know nothing about and may not understand or stick to topics I am familiar with and may learn more about. There are definitely more unfamiliar topics on the schedule this time around, so the next few days will be full of surprises.
Stephen Wolfram’s talk is definitely one I won’t miss. DOMStep? If it involves WUBWUBWUB, wobblin’, and waiting for beats to drop, I’m there. Recommendations have also helped me in choosing on Pete Hunt’s talk on React and Yodit Stanton’s IoT in Practice.
Are you attending Strange Loop? Tweet at me and let’s go to some talks together. 😁
