What I learnt from starting the 'Ladies in DevOps' community

I recently launched the 'Ladies in DevOps' community, a place for self-identifying female DevOps Engineers (or SREs/Infra/Platform Engineers) or women interested in interested in this area of tech to connect and learn from each other. Since launch day, we’ve nearly got over 400+ members! With 300 of members joining in 3 days. I learnt a lot about building an inclusive community, making mistakes, taking on feedback and creating a safe space for all.

When You Think There Is No Time For Learning Or Coding

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in your career? Do you constantly feel like you don’t have time to work on your projects? Do you want to learn something new, expand your knowledge, develop yourself and be the best you can be? In this session, I am going to share my story on how I started coding, how I make time to work on side projects and how you can grow and advance in your career. After this talk, I hope you'll be inspired to work smarter, make new habits and continue pushing yourself even when things fall apart.

From Team Lead to Entrepreneur

Leaving a company when everything feels comfortable, when you have mentees that you love to work with and see grow every sprint, taking risks to follow your dreams, all in the same year as a global pandemic.. what could possibly go wrong?! I will share what motivated me to start my own software company, what opportunities I took, the hard decisions I had to make, and how I stay productive and manage stress.
