  • Mental Health in the Tech Industry – Chad Gowler (@kitation)

    "Mental health is something that will affect most of us. The tech industry is high-paced and high pressure, and this means that we may be leaving some developers to struggle. This talk will examine touchpoints such as meetings, code review and timesheets and think about ways that they could cause difficulty. We will think about how we can make them easier to navigate so that developers can get back doing to what they do best."

    This talk will introduce the basic ingredients of functional programming and explain why embracing them makes JavaScript easier to work with."
