Parenting is difficult in an industry that values working long hours for companies located in more expensive cities. Developer parents share a lot of concerns and frustrations that can be hard to balance with family life, including staying up-to-date with emerging technologies, attending and/or speaking at conferences, on-call schedules, and more. As developers, we worry about parenting issues like screentime and internet privacy from a more technical perspective. Parent Driven Development will cover all these topics and more with a panel of developer parents from diverse perspectives and a variety of tech backgrounds. Parent Driven Development will shine light onto these issues and provide a valuable resource for not only parents in tech, but their managers, colleagues and employers.
This podcast will feature a diverse group of panelists including: Allison McMillan, Katherine Wu, Andy Croll, Chris Sexton, JC Avena, Josh Puetz, Mandy Moore, Jess Szmajda, Adarsh Pandit and Chris Arcand.
Parent Driven Development will cover a multitude of topics, including (but not limited to):
- childcare at conferences
- bringing your children to conferences
- questions from colleagues without kids
- screen time for children
- parental leave
- flexible work schedules
- remote work
- show management
- audio editing, writing and publishing of show notes
- writing and publishing transcripts
- guest outreach and scheduling
- guest preparation
- community management as our reach grows
Any additional funds will go to promotion of the podcast and podcast-related swag.
