On the train home after SwiftFest. What a great experience!

I got to deliver my first conference talk yesterday, and although I still wasn’t feeling 100% great about it, I walked off stage without feeling embarrassed and I talked to a handful of people who said they enjoyed or got some value out of my talk, which was all I was hoping for out of this experience.

It was really great to be able to spend some time with the speakers, many of whom I’ve known and respected for a long time without them ever knowing me before now. And it was really great to be able to talk to some of the attendees about their experiences getting into the iOS development community.

It was two and a half great days of learning, sharing, laughing. Everything I could have hoped for.
