[Keynote] The Art of Computer Science

Do you feel like you have struggled to find your place in the tech industry? Do you feel like coding is a slog? Perhaps you feel dumb or like an imposter? I know exactly how you feel, because I have and currently have all of those feelings bubbling up inside me, and that’s okay! It took me a long time to feel comfortable in this industry, and in this talk, I will tell you about my journey to find a place in tech through my art and a dash of humor. This talk is for anyone looking to feel inspired to find their joy in the technical industrial complex.
