Vue Vixens Workshop - Jen Looper, Progress
Vue Vixens is an initiative that aims to create full-day workshops to teach Vue.js to under-represented foxy people in a cool and fun way. It is based on the successful model pioneered by Shmuela Jacobs for the Angular community (ng-girls.org) who was in turn inspired by the Rails Bridge and Django Girls initiatives. The format will be self-driven code labs completed in a workshop format in groups with mentoring by conference-goers and speakers who volunteer to help. The goal of the program is to familiarize women and those who identify as such in a supportive and inclusive location with Vue.js and general web and mobile programming concepts. Welcome to the skulk!

Reading the Repo: A Workshop on Clear, Effective Communication Techniques - Jory Burson, Bocoup & Tracy Hinds, Samsung NEXT
Building from the topics discussed at last year's Node.js Interactive Keynote Panel on Sustaining an OSS Ecosystem and the Maintainer Group Therapy breakout session, this workshop will cover tried and true communication patterns and techniques to help Open Source developers connect deeply and empathetically with one another. We'll identify our own communication patterns, learn to identify patterns in others, and practice adapting those patterns as needed in order to have better conversational outcomes. Come prepared to talk, listen, and connect!
