First I want to thank Women WhoCode chose me as one of whom who receive a free ticket. Thank you The Home Depot for sponsoring my ticket. It will not be possible for me to learned all I have without WWC and The Home Depot supports. This Conference is all about providing diversity, inclusion in the world of technology. The participants are very diverse. There are diversity in genders, races, cultures ethnicity, cultural backgrounds, and skills levels. Participants felt very empowered and many were open to network. I have made at least 10 new friends from this conference.
Before I got there, I did not think food will be served since the conference is not a super expensive one. But I was so wrong. Not only they served breakfast, 2 snacks, happy hour drinks and company sponsored dinner. All of the food served are of good quality and healthy. Another cool thing is that the team actually make the restroom "All Inclusive Bathroom" . All of these great food and location is only possible because of many sponsors.
Other than, technology tracks like Front-End Engineering, Software Engineering, Product & UX and cool$h!t. There are many sessions about career & leadership and Social Impact. What interests me the most were Career and Leadership and some of the Social Impact's sessions. In my opinion, Fulton County Schools system has very diverse workforce however, Career and leadership track provides sessions that can help be grow as a person in any company.
Often times, sessions of interest were happening simultaneously and it was not possible for someone to attend all they like. All of the slides are being shared at refactrtech.slack.com under the #speaker-slides
The recording of the sessions will be shared when they are ready. Under my session's note. I have shared the power points that are being shared by speakers in the list
