#149 Shauna Keating and Erin Barth-Dwyer “Hudson Valley Tech Meetup”

Shauna Keating has a pretty awesome career as a user experience designer, teaches design for the web as an adjunct professor, and is a mentor at Thinkful‘s UX/UI Design program. She’s serving as President of AIGA Upstate New York and is a Co-Organizer and Emcee of the Hudson Valley Tech Meetup. She believes in building inclusive and friendly software. A work-life balance is also important to her, and that includes time for roller derby.

Erin Barth-Dwyer handles Marketing and Business Development at Moonfarmer, keeping the people of earth connected with all the exciting work they do. Prior to that she was in radio and television and worked for a non-profit supporting the disabled. She’s a decent musician, a poetaster, a wannabe illustrator, and a culinary mad-scientist. Sometimes she slips away from the world to get lost in the mountains with her dog, Garbo. She is deeply committed to getting involved in her community and spends time volunteering with Citizen Action NY. Last BUT NOT least, she’s co-host of HVtech too!

Topics for today include, imposter syndrome, beginner’s mind, reinventing after unemployment, pandemic life, accessibility in tech, alt-text, UX/UI, story telling, roller derby and the harp.

Here’s an article authored by Shauna on Human Centered Design.

HV Tech has it’s next meetup on Wednesday, December 16th at 6pm, and they’re doing “Lightning Talks,” very short presentations lasting just a few minutes on a wide variety of exciting topics. I’ll be tuning in. Hope to see you there!

Today’s show was engineered by Nick Panken of Freedom Highway on Radio Kingston.

Our show music is from Shana Falana !!!
