    121 - Ted Neward is back for part 2

    I've known my friend, Ted Neward, for several years. We met at a tech conference when I accidentally almost ran up behind him to give him a big bear hug because I mistook him for someone else. We've remained friends ever since. Ted is the Director of Technology Culture at Quicken Loans. In this interview, Ted shares his experiences shifting the entire culture of a large technical team from working 10% remotely to 100% remotely. Ted also reminds us to invest into your people during the good times so they will be flexible during the hard times, to empathize with employees, and also "eat your own dogfood." All of the things Quicken Loans has done so well during this unprecedented novel coronavirus pandemic. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I did while recording it.

    116 - Lee Brandt, founder KC Developer Conference

    116 - Lee Brandt, founder KC Developer Conference

    Lee Brandt founded the Kansas City Developer Conference 12 years ago because he noticed the tech scene was lacking. There were 120 attendees at that first conference and it has steadily grown to nearly 2500 attendees in 2019. Today KCDC is a non-profit organization that leads the charge for tech polyglot (multiple technologies and leadership skills) conferences. They created a collaborative community to help support local tech businesses in the Kansas City area.
    With COVID-19 influencing conferences worldwide, I stopped to ask Lee about some of the challenges conference organizers are facing, and possible solutions that he is witnessing within the conference community. In this interview we discuss potential hardships for conference organizers and tips for speakers who are wanting to still stay connected.
