"There are no fake geeks - just real jerks."

I've been following the parallel of this issue in geek fandom for months now, and I'm disappointed to hear it's an issue in professional development as well. I'd be happy to sign the Code Manifesto!

The fact that this is needed upsets me.

Kayla did a great job of highlighting one of the elephants in the room - the extreme gender disparity. Out of 250 or so developers in the room, I heard a count of 7 of them were women. It's an industry problem and it's education problem, but those of in the industry already can start by paying attention to articulate, intelligent developers like Kayla.

An awesome message & an honest, personal delivery.

Great talk! Thank you.
