In 2016, we gathered at AndXP to talk about using practices we love such as pairing, test driven development and frequent customer feedback through the lens of intersectional feminism. It was a great day of small sessions and connecting with each other.
In 2018, we are continuing this conversation and expanding it as Pear Conf! 🍐🍐
Friday July 13 -- Impact Hub San Francisco, 1885 Mission St., San Francisco
Pear Conf will kick off with an optional workshop day on Friday that includes two workshops designed to flow together: an Ally Skills workshop led by Leigh Honeywell and a Pair Programming workshop led by Betsy Haibel and Jennifer Tu of Cohere. This first-of-a-kind workshop has been designed to turn the desire to be a more inclusive pair into a pragmatic reality. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how to set up pairing so that power within the pair is more evenly distributed. This is where D&I rubber meets the road.
Saturday July 14 -- Github, 88 Colin P Kelly Jr St, San Francisco
Join us for a day of unconference style sessions bracketed with keynotes by Write/Speak/Code organizer and Githubber Neha Batra, and the amazing, brilliant, and fearless Sarah Mei. We'll close out PearConf with a Paint Night.
On both days we will provide a light breakfast, lunch, snacks, and beverages. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when registering. Childcare will be provided at both events.
