Keynotes, Conference Talks, Workshops, and Other Presentations by Jason Lengstorf
I have too many repos that aren't actually useful on their own because they're disjointed presentations, demos, and other nonsense. The goal of this repo is to create a single location where presentations live, including relevant demos, slide decks, and other resources.
What’s In This Repo?
- Bio and details
- Keynote slides, details, and videos (when available)
- Workshop slides and details
- Technical session slides, details, and videos (when available)
- Videos of previous talks
(This is what I send to people as my bio.)
Jason Lengstorf is a developer advocate, senior engineer, and occasional designer at Gatsby. He’s an advocate for building highly productive teams through better communication, well designed systems and processes, and healthy work-life balance, and he blogs about that sometimes. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

He uses his eclectic 15+ years of experience to offer a unique, cross-functional approach to solving complex problems.

Along the way, he’s written several books and dozens of tutorials about development, process and system design, and work-life balance.
Building better careers by first focusing on building better lives is one of Jason’s driving principles. He focuses on work-life balance, efficiency, processes, and productivity to help people get more done in less time — so they can spend more time on the things that matter most.
