Milestone in Pickle parenting this weekend. She found her perfect box size.
Up until now she's been mostly ignoring boxes, much to the disappointment of my Maru loving heart.

Brands/teams that have an engineering blog, do you also have a youtube channel/somewhere you collect vids of your team speaking?

Do any of you manage your team's tech blog/videos?

I've got my cheek glitter, my frosted lip and my blue mascara. Must be time to see the Spice Girls!

Very much looking forward to speaking about Impostor Syndrome and Perfectionism in people who work in tech at tonight! Hope to see you there! πŸ¦„πŸ’–

So impressed by's thoughts on 10% time & the support/initiatives they have at the I'm always sad that it seems to be the first thing companies drop when in crunch mode, and yet it is so important to keep the excitement and enthusiasm for learning and creativity.

Let's swap the "soft skills" terminology for "core skills"

Learning to apply game design techniques to developing engineers and teams. This talk from was just 🀯. So many brilliantly explained analogies and theories for good onboarding! Watch it when it is released in a couple of weeks!

I'm so proud of and in awe of and all of the work that she's put in on her journey into tech I can't wait to see what you do with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap team!

My whole feed is and I didn't realize it was possible to sweat from jealousy. I'm so sad to miss alla y'all 😭 Have an amazing day!

So excited to speak tonight with the dream team πŸ’–πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»πŸŽ‰

Diary of an awkward person: I just paid for and ate a sandwich that I didn't want because the seller grabbed the wrong one and slammed it in the toaster before I could say no. Easier to pick out the cheese then ask for it to be swapped So frustrated at myself sometimes! πŸ˜³πŸ™„

A lovely friend of mine has just been let go from her junior role because the company wanted to pay for a junior but hire a senior. Now her confidence is knocked and It makes me so mad that the tech industry, especially start-ups, can treat our juniors this way.

Fab day with the today! βš›οΈπŸ’ͺπŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

On my way to πŸŽ‰ So looking forward to seeing everyone!

Tech twitter peeps, engineers, developers, programmers - Do you have a CompSci degree and do you think one is necessary for your job? (Asking after an infuriating convo yesterday, would love to know your opinions)

Everything is making me anxious at the moment and it is exhausting. I cried a lot yesterday and urgh, things are tough. I hope at least my talking about it helps anyone else feeling the same way to feel less alone, because it sucks.

Fantastic and educational (as always!) talk by on Talking Technology and Speech Synthesis Markup Language at Emphasis, accents and pause options in clear declarative language. Makes such a difference to how we engage with the content!
