Speaking

I've been very fortunate to have delivered 42 talks at conferences and meet-ups all over the world so far and be able to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about web technologies.

Further below (after the map) is a list of subjects I speak about, including the conferences/meet-ups I will or did give a talk about it.

I'm happy to speak at your event, check my schedule and sent me an e-mail!
Keep in mind that I usually require cost of transportation and accomodation to be covered by the organizer, because I’m a freelancer and not backed by a big tech company.
