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?

About Jason

(This is what I send to people as my bio.)

Short version

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.

Long version

Jason Lengstorf is a developer advocate, senior engineer, and occasional designer at Gatsby. In the span of his career, he’s filled every role from development to design, DevOps to sales, and management to customer service. He uses his eclectic 15+ years of experience to offer a unique, cross-functional approach to solving complex problems.

Jason has worked as a software architect at IBM, as a consultant for companies including PlayStation and Intel, and as an entrepreneur who grew and sold a design agency. 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.

He lives in Portland, Oregon, where he spends most of his disposable income on food and travel.
