To grow as a global community, it is important to share information amongst eachother, and conferences and meetups play a huge part in this. To contribute to this knowledge sharing process, I am available to speak at events on blockchain, software engineering, and general tech related topics. If you're hosting an event and want me to speak, don't hesitate to reach out to [email protected]. While I don't require a speaker fee, I would like to have travel and lodging costs reimbursed, with exceptions to smaller events that I am particularly interested in.

I presented different ways that events could be used inside unit tests for Solidity smart contracts.
