Developer at Stripe, panelist on Greater Than Code podcast
Jessica Kerr writes software at Stripe in Ruby, Scala, Go, Python, bash, and JS. She speaks internationally about Elm, Scala, Clojure, Java, Ruby. One might mistake her for a language buff – but really, she is into finding ways to get real work done. She likes to bring ideas from each community into her team, her writing, twitter, the Ruby Rogues podcast, and of course: conferences like YOW. She’s spoken at many across the US and Europe, including StrangeLoop and Øredev; and keynoted several, including Craft in Budapest, CodeMesh in London, and ElixirConf. Talk to her about dependency graphs, types and tests, Western art music, children, and octopuses.
