Hey everyone!

My name's Monica Lent. I've been coding for over 20 years (professionally for ten of those). Since moving to Germany seven years ago, I've been an individual contributor, technical lead, engineering manager, and now founder and blogger. For 10 months now, I've been building my own products full-time!

Here are some things we could talk about:

  • Growing your blog and learning SEO
  • Building side projects/newsletters
  • Speaking at conferences
  • Becoming a tech lead or engineering manager
  • Career development for developers
  • Moving abroad for a tech job

I'm open to talk about most things, these are just a few of the topics that I'm most passionate about lately. I've also given technical talks on topics like software architecture, frontend development, and design systems. These days I'm working on Affilimate (SaaS) and Blogging for Devs (newsletter).

Go ahead and ask your questions in advance below! I'll be back to answer them live on Friday, August 21st at 6:00 PM GMT.
