5 ### Abstract ###
6 We are makers. A crazy & beautiful collection of nerds and
7 other folks, we can't help leaving a trail of created things
8 wherever we go. Alone, we create cool stuff. Together, what
9 we create can be mind-blowing -- if we don't tear each other
10 to shreds, first!
12 Community can be hard. As much as we want to love each other
13 and work together, once in a while things fall apart.
15 This session explores specific ways to ground yourself, come
16 from a place of love, and collaborate with the weirdest, most
17 annoying people.
19 ### Additional Notes ###
21 This talk was inspired by the stuff that happened after PyCon this year.
22 Someone actually asked me to submit to Wicked Good Ruby, so I am, though it
23 doesn't seem to be a clear fit for what you're doing. I gather that this
24 conference is mainly looking for technical talks, and further that you don't
25 want talks given elsewhere. ('<-to make vim shut up about the open quote
26 which is actually an apostrophe.) I expect versions of this talk to happen in
27 August at Steel City Ruby and at Distill in SF. In some sense, all my talks
28 are repeats of "bringing love into your work" and none of them are repeats,
29 ever.
31 What it's not: This is not a "how to be more welcoming to women & people of
32 color" talk. It's also not "here's the one right way to behave" and it's not
33 "how to tell who's right and who's wrong". It's about growing as nerds and as
34 people.
