    Elevator pitch

    As technologist we believe that if anything bad happens – we can just fix it. That dangerous mindset created second-order effects that’ve negatively impacted the end-user & YOU. Come learn a step-by-step framework for how to create positive impact (in the world + your life) through programming.


    As developers, data scientists, open source/ learn in public devotees, we often believe that if anything bad happens – we can just fix it.

    That mindset has created dangerous second-order effects for the both the end-user and YOU.

    “We live in a chaotic world. If a butterfly in Brazil can start a tornado in Texas, then every action we take can and will have secondary effects. Sometimes, the second order effects are more important than the initial consequence.” – James Stuber

    When we critically look at the second-order effects we have created – its easy to see that values are missing in tech – and our personal lives.

    In this fun and interactive workshop, you’ll discover how what you program creates harmful second-order effects – and what you can do to correct this immediately.


    • The second-order effects that impact the end-user
    • The second-order effects that impact YOU
    • The specific negative impact of these effects
