I had heard a lot about Queen Victoria, but didn’t know much about her life until after I took a tour at Kensington Palace during my London visit last year and then started watching “Victoria”, the British TV series. Being a history geek, I got really fascinated by her story. Although the queen lived a couple centuries before me, I saw a lot of myself in her when listening to her story that impacted me in many ways and was as relevant as those of modern women.
I have been giving presentations around the USA for a decade. This year was my first time presenting outside of the country. I was so excited when I was invited to speak at AngularConnect in London earlier this month. While I have been to some countries in Europe in the past and I’m originally from Europe myself, I have never been to London or U.K. Even if I had already visited London in past, it was still a very special place for me to give a presentation.
