CodeConnexx is a 2-day, 1-track conference being held in Indianapolis, Indiana Nov 8-9th. It is only $99 for 2 days; the first day is all tech, and the second day focuses on soft topics like how to manage geeks, working together, mentoring and contributing to open source. The best part about this conference is they truly understand work/life balance and the importance of gender diversity. There is *free* childcare for conference attendees, and 64% of the speakers are female.
I am proud and honored to be doing a tech session on “MySQL Query Optimization with EXPLAIN” and a life skills session on “The Art of Cat Herding: How to Manage Geeks”. And I am also exceedingly proud that Mozilla has sponsored the childcare at CodeConnexx. Will I see you there?
