My name is Leila I'm 26.
I'm a young developer in Belgium and I'm the co-founder of LevIT
I code since 2014 and attend to python/Django conferences since 2015
Ceci n'est pas un job
More than once I have had the pleasure of being informed that my job (which by the way, is also the job of quite a few members of the DjangoCon audience) is not a “real” job.
In this talk I will try to discover what a “real job” is. I will also find out more about what is “real”, and what is a “job”.
As a person who allegedly does not have a real job, and who comes from a country (Belgium) whose reality some people also doubt, I am ideally placed to make these discoveries. I will enlist the assistance of some famous Belgians, including the famous philosopher-actor Jean-Claude Van Damme (not a real actor, according to some; not a real philosopher, according to others) and the artist René Magritte.
I plan to show that being a web developer is not really a job - it’s much more important than that.
