Haha! I fell into the older coders bracket 2 years ago. I’m also a person of colour. However, as you can tell from my spelling of ‘colour’, I’m a Brit. I won’t touch the USA because of the TSA hassle, which risks missing connections, wasting money and time and the potential risk of cavity searches. Things are a mess in wider US society as we see it. So I won’t engage with it at all. I miss out on so many conferences because of that, which is a major downer, but both US and UK society are what they are. So I’ll catch folk the other side of the war.
