Hi! I'm Jen


Welcome to my home on the information superhighway

This is my personal homepage. It's where I share stuff that I think is cool or useful.

But before we get into that, here's a little bit about me:

Work
I'm a Software Engineer by trade, but these days I do Developer Relations at Google. I get paid to help developers build cool stuff. I've worked on Google+, Google Glass, Firebase, Google Cloud Platform, and (most recently) AR / VR.
Ice Hockey
I hike and bicycle, but skate sports are my favorite form of movement. I played roller derby for 8 years before retiring into a safer sport: ice hockey. Most of my hockey games are with NCWHL.
Education
My true calling is education. I'm especially passionate about helping members of underrepresented groups discover the joy of software development. I think tech talks, workshops, and hackathons are awesome, but I also enjoy classroom teaching. I've taught software development classes at San Francisco State University, Xavier of Louisiana, and Dillard University.
