If you think that my blog was hacked, not yet.
Someone advised me to get out of my comfort zone, and somehow my comfort zone is usually speack tech at tech events. So, I decided to try a new format for a session, with some of the stories I usually share in my tech presentations. And that’s how this session was born, and also approved to be at Microsoft Ignite
Diversity is more, much more! Living in tech as a Latino who can’t dance
I was born and raised in Argentina, then I lived eleven years in Spain working all around Europe. Finally, three years ago I moved to Canada. And yes, my Latin background impacted my professional career.
This session is mostly sharing what I’ve learned during these past years. How I learned to get the most from sentences like “You have a very strong accent; I don’t think you will fit this meeting. These are Senior Executives” or “Wow, your accent is amazing, our leadership team will love it!” In both scenarios, I manage to move from frustration or surprise to “let’s focus on our business.”
And it’s not only about language and accent; family, culture, and even food and drinks are a part of the story. Espero que nos veamos en la sesion!https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/80650?source=sessions
Happy coding !
