Learning in Public: How beauty influencers taught me to learn in public

Before Rizel's introduction to software engineering, beauty influencers on YouTube were the first people she saw learning in public. Fast forward to present day: not only did they learn to do their makeup, but they're also leaders in the beauty industry. Rizel learned one important thing from beauty influencers that's helped accelerate her career: you don’t need to be an expert to share what you know. In fact, learning in public is a fantastic tool to build relationships, network, and a career. In this talk, we’ll discuss how and when to share your learning journey through open source, social media, and finding community through public speaking.
