Jessica Lord

Special guest

Jessica is an urban designer turned open web developer—which isn't as odd as it sounds.

She's a backend engineer at Splice. Before that she worked on a bunch of things at GitHub, last was starting the Electron team. The year that changed everything was being a Code for America fellow in 2012.

Jessica did the fellowship after working at the City of Boston's Urban Design Technology group and an architecture firm. Before that she was in college, Georgia Tech, graduating with an architecture degree. Before all that she was an awkward teen in Middle Georgia and a baby!

Jessica champions open knowledge, documentation, and kindness. Also: open source is a privilege.
