We as a developer community like to think the tech industry is a meritocracy: if you put your head down and do your work well, you will be recognized. Unfortunately, this is not typically the case.

In order to advance your career in tech, you will likely need to raise your profile internally at your company and/or externally in the broader developer community. During this session, Lauren will share personal stories of how she has worked to overcome the discomfort of raising her profile and the steps she has taken to do so. You’ll leave this session with practical steps you can take in the coming weeks and months to raise your profile at your workplace and in the broader developer community.
