Diversity Sponsorship

I'd like to sponsor you if you're from an underrepresented group in tech, or help in whatever way I can. Currently I have the capacity to do the following:

  • Sponsor you to attend a local conference. (Probably not transatlantic business class, but I enjoy a good pitch)
  • Help support some learning through experimentation with hardware or software.
  • Help mentor your front end skills, or simply meet for a coffee and give you some career advice wherever I can. You might also be keen to speak to my assistant Ted as well, who can offer expert advice on Dog-related issues.

Find out how to apply here.
