Thank you for being part of Tech Talks with Madona
First, I want to say thank you very much for being part of Tech Talks with Madona; these sessions will be available every Friday. Today, however, I will officially introduce this to my audience and community.
When the world came into lockdown, many things changed. For instance, I used to attend local meetups and interact with women in tech through the Women Who Code community, but this was no longer available. I, however, like many, found ways to engage the community. I would attend zoom calls and interact with others, and during this time, I met so many extraordinary women in technology and formed relationships.
When club house launched, I started listening to different houses, and then I realized I liked this concept, and when Twitter, my favorite social media, launched Twitter Spaces, I could not hesitate and start my own space. Hence, the birth of Android Dev Hangout Space. I started the Android Dev Hangout to engage my Android Community, which worked well. Matt, a super fantastic friend, joined me, and now we do the spaces targeting the Android community together. This will still continue since I am very passionate about the Android Community.
As part of a larger community, I had friends in Web, iOS, Machine Learning Engineers, and Product Managers. This is due to my involvement in Women Tech Groups, like Anita B, Women Who Code, Women Tech Makers, and Women in Digital, just to mention a few. A friend, however, asked me if our twitter spaces catered to other developers. Sadly, since they are called Android, we mainly discuss Android topics, and the space is purely for Android Developers. However, this question from a close friend of mine made me think of other ways to engage an even more expansive community without being specific to just one stack.
Tech Talks with Madona
That's how I decided to start Tech Talks with Madona after a great one-on-one session with a friend, who suggested I should target an even broader audience since I have been involved in communities other than Android, which supports women in technology. So now you know how Tech Talks with Madona came to be. For my first episode, which will air on October 14th, I will be speaking with Shivika Arora. Shivika Arora has extensive experience in financial data analytics and product management. She has recently had the opportunity to build and showcase expertise in tech product evolution and adoption and be a strategic partner to senior Tech leaders in deploying key tech priorities and programs at JP Morgan Chase & Co New York. You can watch this live interview on YouTube or listen live on all Podcasts.
Thank you again for being part of this.
