"So much about building software—more than anyone wants to admit—is etiquette" - Paul Ford - Wired. It is rules all the way down. Folks get together at conferences and on message boards to determine what is good and what is bad. They determine how things "should be", but this also determines who gets to be "in" and who gets to be "out". It is all about access. In a time in this world where technology has drastic affects on our everyday lives - access to technology is crucial. So what should we be thinking about as we build our tech communities? How can we improve access and be aware of our own biases in providing access to others. This talk will shed some light on how we may go about building communities that are truly welcoming and more representative of the communities that we live in and why it is crucial that we do so.
