Loved being part of Hacktoberfest all around but being a speaker for a Digital Ocean webinar was a true highlight! [Detail page](https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tech_talks/level-up-as-an-open-source-contributor)
I was surprised to be asked to give one of the keynotes at API Specifications Conference this year. Recording and delivering a keynote remotely was a strange experience, but I was delighted to be part of the event :)

I love JWTs but they still trip me up sometimes! I was very pleased to have this one accepted to Hackernoon as well, JWTs are all over the tech landscape (rightly so) and they are great tech - but it really helps if you have some tricks :)
I love SDKs and APIs, so it was wonderful to spend some time with a crowd that feels the same way and geek out over my favourite API things. This talk brings together my work over the last few years improving the API documentation and SDK space at Vonage, and it was fun to work on!

Had a lovely chat with the Provonix people about APIs, OpenAPI, low code, and a bunch of other things. Hanging out, solving the problems of the world!
