Talks, Meetups, Conferences

I love public speaking of all forms, from hosting a small class to speaking at a Meetup or even hosting a session at a conference. If you're interesting in having me speak at one of your events, particularly ones related to API design or Open Source technologies, please reach out! me@thomashunter.name.

Testimonials

“This meetup succeeded at both the conceptual level of deepening my understanding of how JavaScript works, and by providing practical knowledge.”

— Gregory D; February 19, 2017

“The meeting with Tom was really interesting. I definitely learned some new things, in particular about JavaScript's Web Workers … and using timeline in the Chrome Developer Tools…”

— Julia H; February 16, 2017

“Everyone was friendly and down-to-earth. I thought I might feel overwhelmed because of my limited background in these technologies, but Thomas was able to cater to all levels, and I learned a ton. I will definitely be returning!”

— Kelly K; May 29, 2011.
