Engineers are people, too: they like the be entertained”: this has been Chloe's mantra while helping build developer communities in the Bay Area as a Developer Evangelist/Advocate. As a former musical theatre actress, Chloe found that many meet-ups, conferences, and events she went to lacked the “entertainment” she was used to consuming “on stage”. Yes, you’re giving highly technical talks, and yes the speakers may not be singing and dancing… but isn’t there a way to make these entertaining? Armed with a theatre, degree, a certificate from Hackbright (an all female software engineering school in SF), and all of the lines/lyrics of Legally Blonde the musical memorized, Chloe set out to make a community events and content that were not only informational, but entertaining as well. In this talk, Chloe will walk through the ways you can use art/comedy/theatre to make events and content gamified, entertaining, and engaging to the community. Turns out people like to have fun: who knew?
