Wrote a Blog Post
I love blogging, but it's not always just fun. There have been some times, when I've considered not writing anymore for various reasons. I wrote a blog post about those reasons, and some advice I would have needed (and sometimes got!) when I've faced those situations.

Spoke at React Finland
Shared accessibility knowledge
Spoke at a conference
+ 1
I spoke at React Finland's Accessibility session about testing sites from accessibility perspective. I want to highlight the other two talks as well; Ante Tomić shared about continuous localization, and Lainey Feingold shared about the legal landscape of accessibility. Highly recommend their talks!

Here's the whole recording from the stream:

Shared accessibility knowledge
I gave a lecture, and then we had a great workshop related to accessibility and how to improve it while developing with six awesome people. It all was part of a small code retreat, which wonderful Magda organized 💖

Wrote a Blog Post
Advocated for Gender Equality
I wrote a blog post about the problems of using the phrase "hey guys", as it is not a gender-neutral expression. I know many people use it and never stopped thinking about the meaning and aren't using it to exclude anyone. If you're one of them, I hope this blog post helps you understand some aspects of the problematic nature of the phrase.
