Talks, Publications, and Podcasts

All the world is a stage and given the opportunity, I am always happy to act and teach upon it.

Justin Ribeiro

Over the course of my career, I’ve given hundreds of talks across the United States in a wide mix of both public and private engagements. I produced and co-hosted The Web Platform Podcast for five years with over a million downloads. I’ve written for publications such as Safari Books Online, EMULSIVE, and NFC Forum, and have spoken at large conferences such as Google I/O, Eclipsecon, SPAR 3D and jQuery Conference.

I have a strict rule about speaking on only topics that I thorough real world experience and results from within the innovation, management, and software engineering spaces. This allows me to deliver talks and have conversations with the people in attendance, virtually and in person, that are meaningful and rich. My goal when giving any talk is to deliver takeaways that are applicable and allow innovation to occur throughout an organization or community.

🎤 Request Speaking Engagement

Looking for a speaker at your school, conference, or corporate event? Send me an email at and let’s try to make it happen!

Please note: I will not accept a speaking invitation, either for a talk or panel, unless your event has a defined diversity and inclusion statement. It’s 2021. We’re not in the dark ages.

Why No Management Talks Online?

I get this question a lot. Most of my innovation and management talks are not available publicly, but are designed specifically for a given corporation or organization.

It is on my list to give more of these talks publicly as the pandemic winds down. Stay tuned.

🎙️ The Web Platform Podcast

In December 2015, I became a regular host on The Web Platform Podcast with Erik Isaksen. Starting in mid-2017, I’ve started hosting the show with Danny Blue, Amal Hussein, and Leon Revill. Today, while I rarely host, I still produce the show for distribution.
