About this event

We have 3 lightning talks to kick off the new year!


Abstractions... But At What Cost?!
by Alexa Welch

In the course of programming, we make frequent use of abstractions on top of abstractions over machine code. Programming languages themselves and even assembly code are abstractions in the first place! We'll be taking a quick dive into the Rust programming language to see how basic abstractions in a low-level compiled language translate to assembly.

Solving 1 of the 2 hardest problems in Computer Science with Git Worktrees
by Chris Guzman

Problems with long running branches, code-gen, and cache invalidation in your IDE? This talk will teach you how to use git worktrees to solve those issues!

Land a Tech Job: Getting an Interview in 5 Days
by Kevin Truong

Listen in if you need help with getting interviews or practicing interviews! One of the toughest parts of landing a tech job is successfully getting through the interview process. Without many chances for practice, it can lead to doing your "practice runs" right in the middle of talking to your dream job company. This talk is here to show you better ways to get more interview reps in so that you can make your next one count. After watching this, you should have a better understanding of how you can succeed in getting to the first round of a job interview within five days. Kevin is a software consultant and a coding career coach that has helped dozens of aspiring devs land their tech jobs and promotions with his program Tap Into Tech.


GDG New Orleans is a monthly meeting where developers can present on any topic related to technology and software development.
