Lunch & Learn: Dx @ AA (Developer Experience at American Airlines)

This summer, we want to grow coders by offering a series of powerful presentations about actual coding industry practices. As a community, we decided that lunch is a better time than 9pm on a beautiful summer night – and since the pandemic created new ways of working, we’d exploit that with our first lunch and learn. (On the west coast, it might be breakfast and learn). Regardless, we invite you to another set of free talks targeted toward individual developers. Our first talk is June 2nd, 2021 and our second is July 7th (details to follow).
