About

Hello, I’m Jeanette, a software developer in Colorado currently working on Pivotal Tracker. I have experience developing, maintaining and deploying software across several platforms: desktop, mobile, and across the full stack of the web. In my community, I give back by speaking at user groups and conferences, as well as sharing my knowledge and experiences by blogging. I’ve also taught classes for Girl Develop It and I mentor for FIRST Robotics.
