I've been giving talks at conferences and user groups since 2008, covering a huge range of topics related to software development, the web, and the relationship between technology and society.
talks at conferences all over the world, from high-level keynotes aimed at a wide audience to deep-dive technical talks about software architecture, character encoding systems, web components and API design.
