Fundraising Talks


If you and your team are looking for an entertaining and informative lunch-and-learn session, I am willing to give any of the five talks listed below via video conferencing in exchange for a donation of US$200 or more to Rainbow Railroad, a non-profit group that helps LGBTQI+ people escape state-sponsored violence. (I hope to add a sixth talk based on Software Design by Example by May if that would be more interesting.) If you’re interested, please reach out.

  1. Writing a Technical Book
  2. Software Design in 50 Minutes (aimed primarily at data scientists and others without formal training in software engineering)
  3. Software Engineering’s Greatest Hits (a short summary of some of the most interesting results from It Will Never Work in Theory)
  4. What Everyone in Tech Should Know About Teaching and Learning
  5. How to Run a Meeting
