The panel was a lot of fun to be on. It was basically the first panel I’ve done at a conference. Technically, I was on a panel at Little Rock Tech Fest 2015, but that was impromptu because there was a cancelled talk. Plus, no one was really there anyway. This panel, on the other hand, was in the main room, which was huge!
And this was a far bigger production. We got mic’d up in a green room that was downstairs in a second overflow room. And they made us hand over our phones before going on stage. Turning them on airplane mode wasn’t even enough. I guess they’ve had enough previous issues that separating us from our beloved devices was worth it. Then we got called on stage by the MC to applause from the audience and everything. It really felt like my 15 minutes of fame!
But hey, at least I made up for it with my cool Eventbrite Engineering shirt!
Anyway, to close here’s the video of the talk:
