From Support to Engineering and Beyond: What to Take with You, and What to Leave Behind
By Adrienne Lowe

Saturday Keynote

Saturday 9:15 a.m.–10 a.m. in Cartoon 1, Cartoon 2

I've had the special experience to, in an extraordinarily short amount of time, move from studying code independently to working full time on a customer-facing technical support team, to working as an full-stack engineer, to finally, leading an organization as Director of Engineering. In each transition, I've had to learn and use certain work skills to both get the current job done and prepare myself for my next. Come hear what attitudes, behaviors, work habits, and lessons I learned and chose to take with me, and what I intentionally left behind, as I made these transitions -- and consider what you might take and leave behind in your own journey.
