Talk: Consistent UX at Scale: Lessons Learned When I Wore the DesignOps Hat
I'm a Sr. Front-End Engineer at Medallia, building their surveys platform and helping them shape the customer experience market with React. My areas of interest include JS and compile-to-JS languages, DX, and performance optimization. Aside from public speaking about these, I also volunteer at TechLabs, teaching front-end development.

Talk: Building Figma’s Widget Code Generator
I am a Software Engineer at Figma, hailing from Leeds in the UK. I have always worked full stack but there is a special place in my heart for anything visual, which has lead me to my role on the Developer Tools team at Figma. What excites me about technology is being able to rapidly iterate on things and work with the smartest people around to build cool stuff! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my cat, oil painting and getting out into the countryside on my own two feet.

Talk: Panel Discussion: UX and the Design/Dev Overlap
Anjana suffers from a chronic case of curiosity, which led her from philosophy to English teaching to computational linguistics to software development. As a developer advocate at Observable, these days she codes & teaches from her home base in San Francisco; in the before-times, you could find her speaking at events around the world. She loves to share the joy of programming and advocate for a more diverse, equitable, and ethical tech industry. Ask her about the Recurse Center & Outreachy, she’s an alumna of both!

Maggie is a designer-developer-anthropologist-hybrid at egghead.io. She spends her time designing visual metaphors for invisible programming concepts, helping developers explain their wildly abstract thoughts, and overanalysing the JavaScript community’s strange cultural beliefs. She's also a digital gardening enthusiast and a Marmite lover.

Talk: So You Want to be an Indie Game Developer?
I got into game development at the age of 15 thinking it would be a temporary hobby. It ended up being my entire life. I'm very passionate for innovative game design and currently have 3 mobile games, 2 browser games and 3 PC games released. I also have a small youtube channel about game development and game design.

A React library of fun kawaii characters that won "Fun Side Project of the Year" in React Amsterdam Open Source Awards 2018.

Also, a big fan of open-source, she has recently released a song for the designer/dev community called "Fork This" (2020). Elizabet currently works as Senior Product Designer for Elastic.
