Middlesbrough Front End #5
We are extremely happy to announce the fifth Middlesbrough Front End meet up. Whether you're a front end developer, designer or just enjoy coding for fun then please come along! You can listen to some fantastic talks, take advantage of some free pizza and well...just have a nice time!
Jack Bradley - One Year In
After spending just over a year in the industry, I’m wanting to talk about my journey from no experience whatsoever to actually having a bit of an idea about what it is I’m doing! I’ll be talking about why I decided to go into dev, the difficulties I’ve faced (and overcome) and some of the things I would consider to be important for beginners.
Whether you’re new to development or considering taking on an apprentice, hopefully this talk will shed some light on a few things.
Gavin Elliott - Imposter Syndrome
When impostor syndrome got to be too much for Gavin Elliott, he had to confront his own deep, sophisticated mental health challenges. In a personal talk, Gavin shares how he learned to handle anxiety and imposter syndrome in a society that’s uncomfortable discussing it. As he says: “Being honest about how we feel doesn’t make us weak — we can overcome our impostor.”
This talk will discuss mental health support, recognising impostor syndrome, the effect it has on our personal and professional lives, how to deal with it and ultimately overcome your impostor.
This month we'll be back at BOHO ONE on Bridge Street West.
