Session Name: Getting Started: Embrace Your Inner Child

On the road to becoming a unicorn, you need to go backward to make progress. As we get older, we forget how to fall down, how to play, how to explore, and be curious - and these are necessary skills to becoming the best unicorn you can be. Most recently I'm diving into two new technologies - distributed databases and javascript and I invite you to join me and my inner child, who really wants to be a unicorn, as we explore rainbows, build mountains, and tear it all down again with joy, curiosity, and eagerness. I will provide specific examples, from using editors to troubleshooting issues, and conclude with practical recommendations on getting started, becoming a unicorn, and conquering the world.
