Ladies of Code Glasgow: Lean Coffee
On Tuesday 23rd January we had our first Ladies of Code Glasgow meetup of the year. This month session was something we hadn’t done before: Lean Coffee. I have attended other local meetups in this format and I think it’s a great way to let everyone have their voice heard… and as a meetup organiser it takes the pressure off finding a speaker!
Developer Book club: The Introvert Advantage
Next up in “developer book club” theme is The Introvert Advantage by Marti Olsen Laney. Not necessary something that will be relevant for all developers but it has helped me understand myself both personally and professionally so thought I would include it.
Developer book club: Reset by Ellen Pao
You may have heard of Ellen Pao, at least as “that women who sued the VC company” or “The CEO that censored reddit”. I had heard of these stories and followed her on Twitter before I got the book.

Developer Book club: Lean In

In “real life”, I only manage to get a wee bits of time here and there to read and this doesn’t really work with fiction.

Developer Diary: CodeCraftConf 2017
Recently I have been attending Code Craft, a local meetup in Glasgow where people talk about… well, code craftmanship, of course!
Getting Started with LIFX API
I thought I would explain how I created a wee sample app to learn the restrictions of the API and have a play with the LIFX bulb.
We Are The City Rising Star Event
I mentioned back in May that I had been nominated for the We Are The City rising star award. Well… I won! There are 100 rising stars over 20 categories, mainly industries that are male dominated, including tech.
