Service-based architectures have transformed the way web apps are built, so let's talk more about what makes them a powerful and fundamental concept for building scalable, reliable, and easy to build and maintain web applications! Never heard of a service? Curious to learn about when you should and shouldn't use one? Want to learn from Gusto's experience building out our first services (and when we chose to stick with the monolith)? Come join us!

Julia Lee

Hey there! My name is Julia and I am a full-stack developer in San Francisco working at Gusto, where I have the opportunity to combine my enthusiasm for tackling engineering challenges and building useful software that empowers people. Not sure how a payroll/hr/benefits platform empowers people? Just ask! In my time at Gusto, I've worked on building out our first services and laying foundation for inter-service communication during our shift toward a service-oriented architecture. My other interests include playing soccer and generally being active outside - I care deeply about the natural world and would love to chat if you have ideas for how software can be used to better protect our planet!

Parking Suggestions

A block or so north on that same side of the road is a lot that allows cheaper parking after 6pm (I think either $2 or $4 for the evening). Before 6pm it is employee parking.

There is also street parking in the Highland neighborhood across the bridge or at the nearby park. There are plenty of 2 hour street parking, but there should also be spots for longer than that if you can find them.
