Made my first open source contribution! (Sure, maybe it was just updating a dead link in a readme, but I still learned a lot in the process!)

Public Speaking
hosted an online event
From September 13 - 27 I hosted the 4th Hashnode Writing Bootcamp, entitled The Art & Business of Technical Writing.

This event featured 7 speakers from the tech industry and drew over 2,500 registrations.

In addition to hosting duties, I oversaw the marketing strategy for the event, including implementation of a digital ticketing system that generated hundreds of posts on social media. I also wrote the landing page copy (55% conversion rate) and the email marketing campaign (35% avg. open rate) for the event.
