My name is Brittney Postma. I am a Developer Experience Engineer at Netlify. That basically means I get to do a lot of fun content around the Jamstack while still coding and building things. I am the founder of the Svelte Sirens, a society for women, non-binary people, and allies to learn, build, and teach about Svelte.I co-host the Svelte Radio, Remotely Interesting, and Purrfect.Dev podcast. I also work with CodingCat.dev to create tutorials and courses. I love helping people in the community and empowering those that don't have a voice to find their place in the tech industry.
Erika started her career in the non-profit sector as a research scientist for hospitals and schools, where she developed an interest in using data to build empowering and collaborative tools. In this industry, she found that most projects needed a software component to translate her research findings into actionable information. This inspired her to pursue an education and career in software engineering so that she could not only assess and analyze the needs of a community, but also build accessible and interactive tools that address these needs. As an engineer, she has worked with companies that help users create and share data, and she hopes to continue writing software that supports scientists and researchers in addressing population needs.
Erika has earned a Master's Degree in Applied Social Research from the City University of New York and a fellowship in Web Development from Fullstack Academy of Code. She currently lives in New York City

KimBley Griffin (she, her, hers) is a Software QA Engineer for Nashville-based i3-Verticals ImageSoft, LLC, but remotely works from her home basement office near Royal Oak, MI. She arrived late to the IT game -- after having transitioned from working as a Project Manager in the energy sector -- but hasn't looked back since completing a Software Tester bookcamp in 2015 at Grand Circus - Detroit and landing her first tech job less than 30 days later. She admittedly has been happily and gainfully-employed ever since. KimBley is currently honing her Test Automation Engineer skills and mostly loving every minute of it. When not "making the doughnuts", KimBley enjoys: sharing with others (e.g., her daughter's Girl Scout troop, her Meta connections, family and friends, and Girl Develop It Virtual Career Fair: Pathways to Success attendees) what her journey has been and how others might also find success as a software test engineer; gardening, walking, riding her new bike, finding and enjoying new wholesome plant-based foods and drinks, and reading multiple books at a time (e.g., "Lessons Learned in Software Testing" by Kaner, Bach and Pettichord; "Under the Whispering Door" by Klune; and "The Strange & Infinite World of Numbers" by Sole).
For as long as Marisa Hezekiah can remember, she has been an advocate for focusing on the "whole child experience" in education, which prompted her to consider a path in teaching English. She never went down that path, but found a way into making a difference for students and pairing her curiosity about technology by joining the Talent Acquisition team at Panorama Education, particularly supporting Engineering and UX/UI Design. In the short time that Marisa has been at Panorama, she has been involved in the transformation of teams in such a way that they really do represent the students who Panorama serves and has been amazed by the growth opportunities Panorama can bring for each individual on board.
