I attended my first software developer conference(s) last week: Blavity's AfroTech and Google's Chrome Dev Summit.

In theory, two back-to-back 2-day conferences seemed like a good idea. In reality, it was an exhausting awesome experience: l met so many people & got great tips.

I won't go into details about what I learned, I'll just describe it with four hashtags: #insightful, #pivotal, #motivational and #worthIt

“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.”
