You can skip through the slides quickly, but they’re a bit confusing because I don’t really know how to use slides (YET!) and just post highlights there – clues to keep me informed about what comes next rather than my speech verbatim.
Better yet, you can read summaries from people who were in the audience and wrote while I was speaking.
I encourage you to send your comments, feedback, and snide remarks to my twitter handle @rainsdance during the course of this presentation.
I am a Technical Account Manager with Red Hat and I know a lot about a few specific technologies, I am a django / python newbie. At Red Hat we have SBRs – specialty based routing – it means that I know a lot about Satellite, but very little about clusters. We realize that everyone’s a newbie about something even if they know a lot about something else.
While you may not be new to django or python, this talk will show you how to leverage the knowledge you already have to learn something new.
After sleeping on it for one night I realize I can define myself even more simply – with only “Dancing Engineer” and “Fierce Mama” – because feminist and baker and public speaker are not as much part of my soul.
Do you hear the angelic choir? DO YOU?!?

Part of the relaunch of this site is in an attempt to brand myself. Not so much in the cattle branding way, but ala Red Hat’s fedora or Twitter’s bird. And, sure, it’s not common for individuals to have a brand. Or maybe it is. But I haven’t done it.
