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