Episode 6: Saron Yitbarek

Show Notes:

Many of us have dreamed about what it would be like to create our own conference. We wonder what it would be like to pick the venue, curate the programming ,find interesting speakers and craft the kind of experience that we'd want.

Saron Yitbarek had this dream too.  Quitting her job allowed her to do bigger projects like a conference for her business, CodeNewbie.

"I wanted to make people feel special. I wanted them to feel like they belonged."

Saron shares what she considered the hardest part of a running a conference (hint: it's an uncomfortable task for most of us). She also shares the best piece of advice she received and the advice she’d give to others.

If you’ve ever wanted to host an event, this behind-the-scenes look is fascinating.
