+DevFest West Terrific event you've got coming up for October.  But what's with a roster that's 100% men?  Google has had so many terrific female engineers and managers. How come their expertise isn't among the conf's speaker list and codelab leaders?

I'm teaching Git Essentials again, this time for PyLadies on July 30th. Enrollment filled within an hour of the PyLadies announcement going out today. So get on the wait list soon if you're interested.  No Python or Git experience necessary.

I'm presenting on "Schemas for the Real World" at Golden Gate Ruby Conference in September.

App development, especially for social, challenges us to evaluate how to code for the complexity of modern life. Examples include the growing range of labels people ascribe to their important relationships, sexual orientation, and gender. Users are giving push-back to questions that carry ill-fitted assumptions.

Facebook, Google+, and developers in many other industries are grappling with these issues. The most resilient approaches will arise from an app's own foundations. We'll look at schemas' influence on product scope, UX, and analytics. Then we'll check out a range of approaches for bringing modern realities into any app's schema, views, and logic.

I get it, yes, Google I/O is coming to town and everyone's excited to piggyback their event to it.  At least a dozen excellent and genuinely substantial events I really would like to go to --  all competing for the same 2-3 hours of evening.  

Quit it.

You have something great to offer, and San Francisco can provide you with outstanding tech audiences every day of the year.  Scheduling on the 28th has unnecessarily forced us into the position of having to miss it.  At minimum, take note next time of how neglected the 27th, 29th (especially!), 30th are this year.

Steve Klabnik gives a good, tight RailsConf ignite talk on privilege within tech communities. Right on for the cheers at "'...I'm sorry you were offended..." is not an apology."
