Lyndsey Padget talks with Dave Rael about confidence, introversion, conference speaking, fighting the right battles, and being a badass

Lyndsey Padget is a Senior Software Engineer at Freightview in Kansas City, working primarily in NodeJS + ES6. With over a dozen years of software and web development experience at both mega-corporations and startups, she specializes in designing maintainable and intuitive RESTful APIs. She speaks about - and offers organizational training/consulting on - microservices, git concepts & workflow, and various soft skills (such as public speaking, teamwork, and the pursuit of badassery). Trained in agile methodologies, she has been known to stunt-double as a project manager (and also, because she is bossy). Lyndsey is involved in local organizations that encourage women, young and old, to explore careers in math and science. She believes that the difference between a decent software engineer and a great one often has little to do with code.

Lyndsey's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Timebox social media and other interactive sources of distraction and make sure you pull and don't get information pushed to you
  2. Prepare your own in batches to save time and money
  3. Listen more - listen actively and not only passively
