Thanks to David Walsh and his blog that I regularly read, I won a bronze pass to the 2017 Fluent Conference in San Jose! I can’t even being to count how many O’Reilly books I have and this conference was right up my alley!
Addy Osmani from Google gave a great talk on “The browser hacker’s guide to instantly loading everything”. So great that he gave an encore talk the following day because the room was packed!
Archana Sankaranarayanan from Netflix gave a talk on “Building a style guide with efficiency, accessibility, and performance built in” which is the talk that I really wanted to see and she did not disappoint! I look forward to using the tools she provided in the very near future. Plus, Netflix had a cool sticker to offer females. I managed to snatch one for me and one for my female co-worker. I also picked up a unicorn “Be Victorious” shirt for her.
One of the key note speakers opened up with this YouTube video on technology in the 21st century (started at 1:25) that cracked me up. I wish I could remember which speaker it was, but I shared this video with my teenage son and my husband.
Finally, I picked up some more socks for my male co-worker. Some?? More like five pairs!!
Thanks again to David as this conference was well worth it!
