Speaking Engagements

Ben Ilegbodu speaking at Reactathon 2018

Every opportunity I get to share my knowledge and experience with others is a blessing! My hope is that every time I give a talk the attendees learn something new that will make them a better developer. If youโ€™re interested in having me speak to or hold a workshop with your group, shoot me an email.
