On this episode of Angular air, we talk to many presenters from ng-conf 2018, and revisit the best parts of many talks and workshops from ng-confs past.
Recently on Angular Air, we had a really special guest list. Random speakers from ng-conf! We last minute reached out to some speakers on the ng-conf 2018 roster and also had Joe Eames and Aaron Frost (two of the big wig organizers ;) ) join us. It was such an incredible show.
As speakers would jump into the hangout, we'd ask them about their talk or their workshop. Near the end of the show, we all started getting very nostalgic and instead of doing picks, we shared our most memorable moments from our past ng-confs. Many of us speakers started out as attendees. We slowly built up our networks and a lot of us through ng-conf got better jobs because of the conference. Also, during the show, Aaron and Joe also made a very special announcement. They have added Bonnie Brenna as the newest official member to the ng-conf team!
I also announced this awesome Diversity campaign that I started for ng-conf on the show!
I was SO excited to announce this diversity fundraiser I started! Any amount of dollars would help us bring underrepresented groups to @ngconf this year https://t.co/eWb0V1ZjXb— Alyssa Nicoll (@AlyssaNicoll) March 13, 2018
Plus, @aaronfrost said ng-conf will match up to $5K of what we can bring together as a community!!! pic.twitter.com/l0BWdwGaWH
We here at ng-conf believe strongly that every community is at its best when and only when it is comprised of a rich and diverse culture. We see the deficit in our community and would like to help in any small way we can. Even bringing five additional people could help provide a voice for an underrepresented people.
We are asking Angular-ites everywhere to contribute to the cause and help increase diversity at ng-conf 2018. Something as small as $5 from each attendee could have a huge impact on what we're able to do.
If you believe you are one such person and you require assistance in making it to ng-conf 2018, fill out this application form.
Together we CAN make a difference.
We are all different, which is great because we are all unique. Without diversity life would be very boring.
