we had nearly 60 people show up for the eng/mgr pendulum skill share, and it was phenomenal.

i have never had so many remote people beg to be included in an event before -- there is a real pent-up hunger for talking about what it means to be a senior contributor in tech.

it was unpossible to include remote folks due to the intimate, discussion-based nature of the thing, but i have not forgotten y'all.

i plan to write a "how to run your own skill share" playbook after velocity. and i will personally attend or help facilitate as many as i can. 🌈

massive thanks to @adriennefriend for pinch hitting as host, and @milesward for the pizza & ❤️ and @lanooba for awesome talk, and the many skilled and lovely facilitators and attendees who did the hard work of being vulnerable and open, bringing random topics to life on the spot.

if i didn't already believe that the way to level up on complex nondeterministic topics was by sharing skills and stories with your peers, i sure would now. <3
