Meet The Speaker: Kyle Simpson
As part of our preparations for YGLF 2019 Code Camp we're excited to share with you another interview, in the series of interviews, with this year's amazing speakers. Hear their stories and their professional insights. This time we're with Kyle Simpson (@getify)
Q: Tell us a bit about yourself
I've given well over 100 conference talks on JS, written 8 books about JS, and for the past 6.5 years I've been teaching JS in corporate workshops and conference settings.
Q: Who is your favourite tech thought leader and why?
One of my favorite speakers and authors is Jeremy Keith (@adactio). He's so level headed but so passionate about what's good for the web. Nearly every blog post he's ever written, I've found myself nodding along the whole thing.
Q: What advice would you give yourself at the outset of your career?
Stop optimizing for how easily you can bounce from one job to the next, to get promotions, and instead optimize for how you can dig in and learn to succeed in the job you have.
Q: What will you teach us at YGLF Code Camp 2019?
Thank you, Kyle!
