Sumana Harihareswara's Talks & Presentations

I'm Sumana (pronunciation), the founder of Changeset Consulting, and I frequently write and speak on open source, management, and other topics. I also perform stand-up comedy specifically written for tech audiences, and speak on podcasts and panels.

Invite me to speak. I am available in person starting in August 2021, and for virtual events starting in April 2021. Except in extreme circumstances, I need five months' notice to deliver a talk, and a month's notice to speak on a podcast or panel.
