Podcast Description

“That’s what a lot of people miss, unless you’re specifically going up to people and saying ‘I am not white, I am indigenous’ – no one is going to recognize that.”

All I can think is DarkSkyLady is a creative zealot writer talking and combatting white supremacy and all its sub branches.

Podcast Description

“Oh I can’t even make jokes anymore or I can’t be myself anymore.” – like yeah, if that’s how you are then you should not be yourself. You can be that way…and I don’t care if I’m not around, I don’t care. But yeah that’s what a code of conduct means: you have to behave in a professional way.”

Lian Li always wanted to save the world. 

After a failed attempt at becoming a lawyer, she decided to do something with computers instead. Working as a Fullstack Software Engineer, she got into attending tech events and giving talks on Machine Learning. During this time, she discovered her passion for building community and providing a safe and productive environment for all, which led to her co-organising the community conference ServerlessDays Amsterdam.
Currently, Lian lives in Amsterdam and works as Cloud Native Engineer at Container Solutions, a consultancy focused on programmable infrastructure.

Podcast Description

“If you give ‘em your best slice of pizza and you know that’s your best slice in the box and they act like it ain’t nuthin, and they try to give it back, spit it out, whatever – don’t even give ‘em no more pizza.”

After losing more than ten close friends due to gun violence, Jared Arms motivated himself to learn to program in order to build an application which centralizes all the obituaries of those who died due to gun violence. Jared used the experience to create Kylar.io, a technology platform for communities and businesses.

Tatiana Mac

Podcast Description

“What if we were both carpenters instead of developers or designers and we were having these types of conversations about React versus Angular versus Vue, and it was about screw driver? Is it a flat head or a Phillips? Can you imagine two carpenters going at it on Twitter: I can’t believe you use flat-head screw drivers. That’s ridiculous!”

Tatiana Mac (she/they) is an independent American designer who works directly with organisations to build clear and coherent products and design systems.

She believes the trifecta of accessibility, performance, and inclusion can work symbiotically to improve our social landscape digitally and physically. When ethically-minded, she thinks technologists can dismantle exclusionary systems in favour of community-focused, inclusive ones.

Never totally pleased with design tools, she designs in browser to bring performant, semantic, and accessible visual narratives into the web. Her current obsessions are optimising variable fonts, converting raster images into to SVGs, and recreating modernist paintings in CSS grid. When she can successfully escape vim, she finds new countries to explore (33 and counting).

Simone Haas

Podcast Description

“Where are our biases? What do we have to do to get more people of color into our team and feel safe in our team. And then maybe feeling safe enough to tell us: we are feeling harm, please help us in this case. I think this is the biggest failure that they didn’t feel safe enough to tell us that they need our help. Or to trust us that we want to help or could help in this situation.”
 
Simone Haas is CEO of The Neighbourhoodie Software GmbH. After studying history and working in the publishing industry she moved to Berlin in 2015 and became a member of the CSSconf EU and JSConf EU team. Since 2018 she is curator of JSConf EU. 
 
Being a non-programming person in tech she is challenging the status quo by managing the operative business behind the code.
