Speaking Engagements

Ben's upcoming and previous speaking engagements

Every opportunity I get to share my knowledge and experience with others is a blessing! My hope is that when I give a talk, host a workshop or participate in a panel, the attendees will learn something new that will make them a better developer.

If you're interested in having me speak to or hold a workshop with your group, thank you! It means a lot that you entrust me with with leveling up your group. Please feel free to contact me via Twitter, email or my AMA.
