A Harry Potter-inspired revision of my ElaConf talk on Self Care.
Basic focus is on the developer, not the technology. The simple recognition that technology moves fast, we are all workaholics, and that self-care is critical to being productive and happy. Bottom line: we are humans first, developers second — so let’s prioritize that.
This will focus on my own journey in recognizing the need for establishing work boundaries, boosting self-esteem and de-stigmatizing mental health so that we can create more healthy developers and in turn lead to more innovative products & collaborative environments.
