This week, I moved Diversify Tech to Gatsby which is a static site generator for the React library. I've not worked with React before. It was fun to learn something new. If you want to try Gatsby, I recommend their tutorial and starting with one of their starters. If you are curious about why one would use a static site generator, here is why. I had to look up myself.
I gave a workshop on how to get a job in tech. I used to have a fear of public speaking and I'm trying to practice at least once a year. I didn't get very nervous which was great. However, I had too much content. I had to rush and I didn't have enough time to answer questions. Lessons learned for next time!
I did put together several worksheets to help you find a job in tech: 1. To think about the role you are looking for. 2. To see what your online presence says about you now 3. Checklist to grow your network and look for a job. Let me know if you'd like a copy!
I'd love to hear about what you are working on as well as any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think!
