Keynote: Lessons from a three-year-long mental health journey.
As developers, we are analytical. We think in the abstract. Our workplaces can be more inclusive than most because we can work from anywhere with a laptop and Internet connection. Disabilities accommodations, like iterative execution and regular one-on-one meetings with our managers, are built into our normal work routines. These advantages make us uniquely positioned to battle mental illness. Jenna will cover lessons learned from finding product-market fit in her mental health treatment and what she's done to set up her growth phase for success.
