Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader? Probably not: How to Design Technical Content with Inclusivity in Mind

In an increasingly technical workforce, comprehending and applying advanced technical concepts is essential for success in various roles. Traditional developer education typically only caters to an already technical audience, leaving many potential learners feeling excluded or overwhelmed. In this talk, we’ll explore the importance of accessibility and digestible content in developer education and propose strategies for designing a curriculum that makes even the most complex concepts accessible to individuals beyond the typical software engineer or product manager archetype. I will explore and explain practical approaches to democratizing technical education. By adopting a mindset of inclusivity and accessibility, we can create a more equitable and empowering learning environment for the next generation of tech professionals.
