Docker, USA
Talk: What are Docker Extensions
As a youngster, I had an early interest in computers. I quickly learned to disassemble and reassemble my family's Tandy 1000 without much effort. This passion only grew as I got older. In college, I became very interested in helping to bridge the growing digital divide and started a student organization, Tech Serv, at Drexel University. After college, I started my career as a data analyst but quickly found a career in Product Management. Here, I was able to combine my love for technology with my passion for improving the lives of others. Since that time, I've been a product manager in a variety of industries including MarTech and HealthTech. Now at Docker, I hope to continue on my journey by improving the lives of developers and helping solve their daily challenges.

Talk: Owning your Build-step – Owning your Code
Current maintainer of RollupJS. After finishing my PhD studying the mathematical properties of black holes, I decided to go for less substance from then on and follow my passion of becoming a professional software developer. For the last six years, I have been doing full-stack consulting work for various clients at TNG Technology Consulting GmbH. This includes a big focus on DevOps: tuning Node servers, tending to Kubernetes clusters and orchestrating CI/CD pipelines are an important part my work. During this time, I also stumbled upon RollupJS, and while I originally only wanted to push a few improvements to their dead code elimination algorithm, I ended up rewriting it from the ground up. And in the process, I accidentally became acting maintainer of that project :) Since 2017 I have been continuously working on further improving tree-shaking, adding code-splitting together with Guy Bedford, and many other things to make it a great tool not only for optimizing JavaScript libraries but also for advanced and custom build processes at big companies like Github, Bloomberg, Salesforce and many others.
