The transatlantic journey to success
The tech dream, right ? No matter the background everyone has wish at least once to be able to develop their own awesome app or get a job in that super cool company everybody is talking about. Where to begin ? Unfortunately, not all of us were born in a tech hub. I know that pretty well and decided to leave Mexico, my home country. However, not everyone can make the decision of leaving their hometown to pursue their dreams. What can we do though ? How can we bring closer the community to its less privileged members ? The purpose of this talk is to raise awareness towards the struggle some minorities have to go through in order to get access to better professional opportunities and show a glimpse of the current status of the latin american tech scene.
