Coverage in Edge Magazine and on IDG Connect

The topic of combining motherhood and continous learning with a full-time job seems to be of interest to a lot of women, based on the number of opportunities I'm receiving these days.

I've completely forgotten to share the article on upskilling in my maternity leave that was published in Edge (ILM) Magazine. Edge (ILM) Magazine is the official publication for the Institute of Leadership and Management in the UK and you can find my story here.

Yesterday my story was covered by IDG Connect, a global IT publication, reporting key industry trends and news to an international CIO audience. This is probably my favorite article so far, titled "How maternity leave helped make me a better developer".

I have two months left of my maternity leave before I start my new job at Microsoft. And until then, my schedule is surprisingly full.

I'm very excited about an interview I'm doing next week with a major Norwegian newspaper, and there are some very interesting rumours going around about my story being told at a conference at Harvard yesterday, but I haven't been able to confirm that just yet.

On February 3rd, I'm doing a short 15-minute intro for Girl Geek Dinner Oslo on the tools and techniques I use to upskill. After this talk, I'm planning on writing a blog series on the very same topic as I often receive many of the same questions. If my baby girl doesn't have other plans for me, I'll start publishing the series in mid-February.

Until then, you can follow me on instagram to see what I'm doing on a daily basis (no baby pics, I promise!)
