Summary

Angela Harms keynotes on the importance of improving relationship and communication through empathetic listening, authentic connection and compassion rather than applying practices blindly.

Bio

Angela Harms is an agile developer, coach, facilitator, and instigator. She loves beautiful code that emerges from collaboration, and learning new ways to make it work. When she’s not pairing on tests and the code they inspire, you can find her at conferences speaking about what she’s learned (so far), facilitating retrospectives, or discussing the intersection of software and love in open space.

It's two days packed with mobile, web, hardware, software, process, and team talks to help you expand your knowledge, meet other technically-minded folk, and immerse yourself in Detroit's tech renaissance.
