Event description



Pear Conf is expanding its community to include a monthly distributed meetup!

Each month, we will get together online to listen to a talk from wherever we are.

Pear Conf Community

Pear Conf started as a small 1-off, un-conference in San Francisco, but is growing to include monthly meetups in Chicago and San Franciso.

Each month have an online meetup and each quarter, we have face-to-face meetups in each city.

Once a year, everyone gathers for a conference and un-conference day.

Our July special guest is Esther Derby!

Esther will lead us in an interactive meetup about improving remote meetings.


Esther Derby is a writer, consultant and workshop facilitator. Esther is one of the rare breed of consultant who blends the technical issues, and the managerial issues with the people issues. She is well known for her work in helping teams grow to new levels of productivity. She runs the popular and always sold-out, Problem Solving Leadership workshop and has written several books about management including Behind Closed Doors and the upcoming, 7 Rules for Positive, Productive Change: Micro Shifts, Macro Results.

Recognized as one of the world’s leaders in retrospective facilitation, she often receives requests to work with struggling teams. Esther also coaches technical people who are making the transition to management and is a Certified Scrum Master.

Marlena Compton is a software developer, writer and collaboration artist. She organizes conferences such as "Pear Conf" and "Let’s Sketch Tech!" builds software, and introduces people to pair programming. Marlena’s agile hat-trick of working for IBM, Pivotal and Atlassian, has left her with a life-long appreciation for quality code, empathy and working together with a team. Marlena enjoys writing about tech, sketching talks at conferences and sometimes giving talks too.
