I like public speaking and giving workshops, sharing my thoughts and perspective on iOS, Swift and programming.
Topics I am particularly interested in include accessibility, inclusive design, testability, open source, and the Swift.org project (and its evolution process). This is not an exhaustive list and may change over time.
If you are interested in me giving a workshop or speaking at your event, please get in touch.
