Hello! I'm Elef, and I'm thrilled to support aspiring individuals in their journey toward tech conferences. I started speaking at conferences in 2017 when I was still doing my masters and trying to find a tech job for the first time! My strengths lie in assisting individuals to fine-tune their proposals, ensuring they effectively communicate ideas and stand out in the competitive conference landscape. I'm dedicated to helping everyone succeed, regardless of background or level of experience. My special priorities involve providing guidance to people of color, individuals with disabilities, and female folks, fostering a diverse and inclusive conference environment. My aim is to empower mentees to craft compelling proposals, navigate the submission process, and ultimately shine on stage. Join me on this exciting journey, and let's make your conference aspirations a reality!

Really technical person, build various applications that handle massive amounts of traffic with very little ressources. Built various compilers and runtimes for javascript. Currently running my own AI company which is building one of the world's fastest embedding engines and other nlp related things with a fraction of the ressources most companies have for this. I'm open to anyone applying for mentorship, I do highly value my time nowadays though so the price might be pretty steep for some, mostly targeting teams and leadership that is struggling with certain performance and scale issues as well as struggling with using dev time efficiently and optimising development processes that think I'd be able to help with, not aiming to coach someone's entire career. Might mentor for free in a couple years when life cools down.
