Tonight, Chloe Condon, Developer Evangelist at Sentry, will be giving a talk on managing alerts and logging in complex apps.
Once users start using our apps, we run into the process of discovering errors. Keeping track of these can get messy, getting alerted is stressful, & measuring it can provide you with an overwhelming amount of info. How do we combine all these things to make our apps work even better than before?
Former musical theatre actress and Hackbright Academy graduate, Chloe is now a Developer Evangelist at Sentry. Pre-Hackbright, she spent her nights and weekends performing in the Bay Area as a singer/actress and worked in tech by day. To support her theatre career, she started to learn to code on her own through online resources. Perhaps the only engineer you'll meet who has been in "Hairspray", "Xanadu", and "Jerry Springer: the Opera"- she is passionate about bringing people with non-traditional backgrounds into the world of tech. If you're trying to place her face, yes- she's the young woman giving the awkward thumbs up in the "What It's Like to be a Woman at a Tech Conference" article (which she also wrote). Chloe is also the organizer of TechLadyPicnic (a SF women in tech meet-up group), as well as the hostess/organizer of Sentry Scouts (a camp themed monthly tech meet-up... yes there are patches for each meet-up). A quick Google search of her will provide you with getting started with Docker videos, observability articles, theatre reviews, tech blogs, and videos of her singing- enjoy!
OpenLate provides an evening hack lounge with themed tech talks at the OpenDNS office.
