I'm Morgan, and I love to make things better than I found them.

What helped me feel like not-an-imposter

I spent several years in technology feeling like a bit of an imposter until I met the group of people I now refer to as my hype squad.

I’m grateful to them for:

  • Teaching me gitflow over beers using random objects to represent commits and branches

  • Giving feedback while I practiced a talk over and over again. And again. And again. AND AGAIN.

  • Offering help, multiple times, even when I’d never taken them up on the offer before

  • Talking honestly about their experiences learning, failing, and burning out

  • Commiserating with me about the phrase “not technical enough”

  • Sitting with me while I completed a tutorial, chilling and doing their own thing, in case I had any questions

  • Trying out the design sprint process with me, for funsies

  • Connecting the dots between ethics in technology and dismantling white supremacy

  • Spending a loooong time helping me get my computer set up to start a hackathon project

  • Sharing their favorite tutorials and coding tools with me

That, and a lot of really excellent gifs. :)
