Tessa's Thoughts — Issue 4


Last week was busy. I had the opportunity to attend That Conference TX in-person and deliver the opening keynote. While at the conference, I also presented at an online event called Community-led Summit. I strongly recommend you check them both out as most sessions were recorded & streamed. At That Conference I had the opportunity to meet someone who's in the Snap Spectacles creator program and we discussed the lenses he's building in Lens Studio. It's always exciting to meet people in a new community and role you've recently joined. Snap continues to impress me and I feel blessed to be working there.

That Conference is heading to the Midwest this summer, and I strongly recommend you check out the event.

Add Community Leader to that list too! Lacework laid off 20% of their workforce last week. Happy to do introductions!

🥑 DevRel

I'm a big fan of open-source documentation. Who's doing it?
Great opportunity to absorb some amazing DevRel knowledge and share your insights with the creators. 

👧 Being a Wife & Mom

I had a lot of fun helping my daughter color her hair pink for the summer. We promised her she could do it once school was out. 💞

🏕 Adventures

My friend Raquel was in Austin last week so we were able to spend some time together during & after the conference. It's always lovely getting to spend time with her. We even had the opportunity to grab dinner with a couple other WordPress folks—Mike Demo & Cory Webb.
