TestBash 2018 Stats Thus Far

At the time of writing this (May), we still have one TestBash to announce, but we wanted to share our speaker stats thus far. 56% male speakers and 44% female speakers, with the same stats applying to workshop instructors. We know diversity is far beyond gender, but we are really pleased to see these increases and we'll continue to focus on diversity.
