What I'm proud of

While I try to be proud of (and pragmatic about) the code I write everyday, these are few things that stand out.

  • Write/Speak/Code
    I founded and co-organized this action-oriented, 3 day conference for women developers. One day was spent learning to become thought leaders, conference speakers, and open source contributors. Find out more at writespeakcode.com
  • Mentorship
    From collegues to interns, I take pride is seeing people around me become better developers, more active in the community and better people. I've managed interns and junior developers professionally and have taken on apprentices in my spare time through DevChix. Contact me if you're interested.
  • Giving back
    One of the things I most love about being a developer is that I get to be a part of a community dedicated to learning and improvement. In my own small ways, I try to give back: from co-organizing GORUCO to speaking at RailsConf to publishing gems.

A few more things

  • At the end of the day, I care about people — the ones being helped by software, the ones writing the software now and the ones who will continue to work on the software in the future.
  • Fundamentally, what we all want is to be heard.
  • My opinions are strong and strongly held ... but easily swayed by evidence and trust.
