C J Silverio

Podcast Description

“Twitter is an absolutely fascinating example of the political choice to say free speech is an absolute…The problem with that is, of course, they’re white men. Their default experience is radically different from the majority around them who have a very different experience.”

C J Silverio is probably best aimed at back-end problems, where she can make your complex system better at doing its job, whatever that job is. She can make your team better at being a team. She loves sharing everything she knows and learning everything she can with the people around her. She writes well and speak in public with confidence.

Kojo Idrissa

Podcast Description

“There’s a term in computer science that I’ve become fond of, the idea of a naive solution. It’s a solution that appears to be correct at first glance. But if you dig in a little deeper you realize, ya know what – this is not really the way to go.”

Kojo Idrissa *was* an accountant who got an MBA and taught at university in two different countries. He’s *now* a  software engineer, intercontinental tech conference speaker, DjangoCon US organizer and the DEFNA North American Ambassador #NorAmGT.

Lian Li

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.

“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.
