About Us

Turns out children arrive with no manual. There's no coherent online tutorial.Between staying up to date with emerging technologies and balancing work and home life in an industry that often requires un-timeable bug fixes, on call schedules, and more, working parents are balancing a lot.Parents are also exploring additional technical issues like "screen time" or internet privacy, coming at these issues from a different perspective as technologists ourselves.We cover all of these topics and more using a panel of parents coming from diverse perspectives and a variety of technological backgrounds. We'll shine light onto these issues and provide a valuable food for thought for these folks.Want to ask a question that the panelists can discuss in an episode? Email us at panel@parentdrivendevelopment.com.And if you're loving the podcast and want to support us, please visit our Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/parentdrivendev)!

Parent Driven Development Episode 029: Organizing Conferences 00:57 Balancing Conferencing with Parenting Andy has organized RedDotRubyConf, still organizes Brighton Ruby, and has spoken the past few years at RubyConf. Andy also puts out an email newsletter, with one Ruby/Rails technique delivered with a ‘why?’ and a ‘how?’ every two weeks. It’s deliberately brief, focussed & opinionated, and called One Ruby Thing.
