The Front End community has a great focus on tooling and dev experience. We as a front end community can learn from each other, and combine our efforts to make this even better!


⭐️Ellie Day:

Talk topic: Profiling React performance with Chrome DevTools

Ellie Day is a Senior Software Engineer at Atlassian Statuspage. She has extensive product building experience and often gives talks and workshops on various technical topics. Additionally, she’s passionate about helping other women have fulfilling tech careers via her role as director of Women Who Code SF and her continued mentorship of those breaking into tech.

⭐️Chloe Condon:

Talk topic: Logging, and Errors, and Metrics - oh my! Best tools for user behavior

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). In February of 2018 she was named one of the "200+ Thought Leaders in Crypto and Blockchain" and still knows absolutely nothing about Crypto and Blockchain... however, 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!
