DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019 - Adoptable Goats Near Me: What I Googled the Year I Became a Developer

Speaker Session

Join Qymana Botts on her journey to becoming a web developer at DrupalCon Amsterdam 2019 during her session, "Adoptable Goats Near Me: What I Googled the Year I Became a Developer."

Told through the lens of the Qymana's errant Googlings, this session will take participants on a journey from music teacher to web developer, all the while examining the different types of learning that occurred along the way. This session will delve into theories about learning, techniques to improve information retention and problem-solving, and how to shift your perspective to learn from even the bleakest situations.

Embark on a harrowing adventure through a stranger's search history, and emerge on the other side with:

  • A greater understanding of the learning process,
  • Practical strategies that you can utilize in your own learning,
  • A new perspective on the value of discomfort and failure.
