Interesting and important thread on github at https://github.com/Esri/devsummit-feedback/issues/20#issuecomment-476711862
I think the time is right (and ripe!) for the Dev Summit, regardless of overall theme, to consider a woman dev expert as keynote speaker. One who comes to mind immediately is our own Amber Case, former Director of the Portland R&D Center, who continues to be a force of nature within the tech community. Others are Kristin Tolle and Sarah Edo of Microsoft.
