I had a wonderful time yesterday at the Tech Forum. I presented my work "Introducing Coding to Middle School Students" which many people I spoke to seemed very interested and really enjoyed my presentation, and that was awesome. What was really great was the rest of the day. The speakers were inspiring, the topics covered were relevant, and everyone was so friendly and generous with their skills and knowledge. It was comforting to be among my people-the geeks. You could use words like "social media" without anyone's eyes glazing over.
I think I know a lot of stuff about technology, but then I go to events like this and feel like an idiot. The more you learn about technology, the more you realize how much you don't know. I have a lot to explore and discover on my own is what I took away from the forum yesterday. It's overwhelming, but also fun in a way. Technology can be tough and frustrating, but it is never, ever boring.
Thanks for a great day everyone.
