Education Resources

This is the companion page to my Ignite talk at DevOpsDays Silicon Valley 2015: "Everything I know about agile I learned in 8th grade."

After college, I spent two years in the Teach for America corps. TFA's practices and impact are controversial and I have some issues with their philosophy but I found the work of teaching transformational, and it has permanently changed my perspective on national priorities. I see education inequality, and its vicious interplay with racism, oppression, and economic inequality, as one of the biggest — if not the biggest — problems this country faces. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I think there's a place for the devops community to apply its innovation, empathy, and intense passion to solve this multi-trillion-dollar national SEV-1.
