I just spoke at the Typelevel Summit in Philadelphia and it was fantastic!
I thank all the people who were involved in planning it as well as the kind people who approached me after I did my bit to share their kind words with me. It really made me feel like I was not only part of a community but also welcomed and valued as a member. I am truly touched.
The talk seemed to have gone over well and I got a lot of good feedback from attendees and fellow speakers that I can use to make any future talks I might do better.
In the coming weeks, I'll write a series of posts that further detail my process for bringing people into the ecosystem.
