Last weekend I spoke at DevFest North America, though I was in a shed in Bristol, UK, rather than anywhere in North America! You can find the video of the talk starting at around 31 minutes in this video of the day two stream. My slides and code examples are here.

I'm starting to talk to people about speaking events next year, it seems as if most people are still staying virtual or hedging bets with a hybrid event. However I'm happy to work with potentially changeable plans, so if you are looking for speakers for 2022 events let me know.
