Why I Quit Tech Three Times and How It Is I’m Still Here

The folks at DevTo invited me to travel to Toronto for their celebration of International Woman's Day. At first, we planned to have me talk about layout CSS and the coming changes in graphic design on the web, but as the event got closer and closer, it became clear I should talk more directly about what it's like to be a woman in tech.

I didn't have a lot of time to pull together my thoughts. I haven't been researching stats or collecting antidotes from others. I just took a day or two to toss together some moments from my life, and my then-current thoughts about the landscape.

The result is a talk that much more rambling and self-centered than I'd like, but for anyone who wants to hear me talk about my experience of being a girl and a woman in tech, here it goes.
