Live from @timesupnow headquarters where we’re manning the stations. Wearing black today to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault and rape, and to demand the end of harassment and marginalization in my industry and across all others. Never before have we come together in this manner to strategize and implement concrete methods that will change the fabric of our industry and ensure the toppling of a power imbalance we have endured for far too long. Honored to have a part in this monumental change and to join all women across Hollywood in saying: #TIMESUP! #whywewearblack

I’ve been leading a project around building a microservice/moving products from a monolith to microservice for the last few months. As it comes to an end I’ve gotten to retrospect on it. Between leading a complex project/engineers to building tooling for robust systems and just all the learnings from this type of monolith-to-microservice migration, it’s been such an incredible experience and I’m looking forward to sharing my insights with you all. My favorite parts have been seeing people use the tools my team and I built and therefore be able to move faster and more robustly. That is why we invest in these things 🤓.
