I am very active in the Android community, blogging and speaking and sharing code, but I can only do so much as one person. To scale my efforts, I mentor others to do the same, which aligns with the goals of Write/Speak/Code exactly.
During Write day last year I shared my conference report blogging formula, I have seen it being adopted widely. Some examples:
- Big Android BBQ 2015 by Kelly Shuster
- What I learned from Google I/O 2016 by Margaret Maynard-Reid
- Write/Speak/Code 2016 Recap by Annyce Davis
This year, I was on the writing panel again, and also moderated the conference organizers panel. I hope to inspire many more women to go forth and share their knowledge. Storify:
Besides mentoring, I took the opportunity of being surrounded by amazing women to level up my own career as well. One of my 2016 speaking goals is to give a keynote, and during Write/Speak/Code I brainstormed and refined a topic that I am super excited about: The State of Android Testing.
I'd love to hear your Write/Speak/Code story. Did you get started on writing, speaking or open source because of it? Let me know!
