Reason for being involved in workshop: Speaking at events is intimidating, that's a very real reality. It's hard to know where to get started or what your CFP should look like and even I felt awkward writing my own bio just now. But, for me, having people to support and guide me through the process helped. So now I want to be that person for someone else and encourage more voices to be represented on stage 💖

About Christian: Christian Schaefer (https://twitter.com/derSchepp), known as "Schepp", is a freelance frontend developer from Düsseldorf, Germany. Instead of hacking around with JS-Frameworks as almost every other frontend developer currently does, he works on traditional server-rendered component-based systems, uses bleeding edge CSS, has an eye on accessibility as well as the loading and runtime performance of a site. And then he also organizes a meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Webworker-NRW/) and co-hosts a podcast (https://workingdraft.de/).
