Testing Adolescence: Anthony McDonald's Coming of (Testing) Age Story

Brightcove 1355 N Scottsdale Rd, Suite 150 Skysong 4 Scottsdale, AZ (map)

This week we're welcoming a guest speaker Anthony McDonald, an Auth0 Ambassador!

Here's a bit from Anthony about his talk and himself:

Passing tests are like parental approval when you're a teen. I act like I don't need/want it, but I desperately do. The journey to learning to test and gaining the approval a developing developer desires.

Anthony McDonald is a life-long learner, teacher and retired professional kickball player. He retired from kickball to teach financial literacy to children. He quickly learned that teaching wasn't for him. He began teaching himself software development to automate his curriculum because he wanted others to have access to the tools and learn to make better decisions with their resources (money and time). He plans to continue his kickball career make kickball an Olympic sport after he builds the Khan Academy of financial literacy.


If you or your company would like to sponsor this meet up and provide food, please contact Jayson.

See you then!
