This was my first time giving a 'talk'… first time in Portland, Oregon… and I got to meet so many great people! I already had a very positive view of the community from interacting with various people online, but now that I've met a number of them in person, I cannot express in words just how wonderful / thoughtful / inclusive the ember community is.

During the conference I noticed a lot of neat ways to demonstrate and focus on code on slides. I didn't do well at this during my talk, but wanted to provide a place where I track updates to the slides in case anyone wants to reference them. I know that I'll be referencing them as I try to flesh out some ideas in more details. 30 minutes is not a lot of time with such a broad topic!

* I've technically given talks at local meetups before. one was on a ruby gem for bringing the ideas behind ember's module unification efforts to rails, Drawers, and the other was on a topic similar to what I spoke about at emberconf, but much higher level.

** My first conference was gencon 2018. That event takes over the entire downtown Indianapolis area.
