An internationally known community manager, speaker, and author, Leslie Hawthorn has spent the past decade creating, cultivating, and enabling open source communities. She created the world’s first initiative to involve pre-university students in open source software development, launched Google’s #2 Developer Blog, received an O’Reilly Open Source Award in 2010, and gave a few great talks on many things open source.
In August 2013, Leslie joined Elastic as director of developer relations. She works from Elastic’s EU HQ in Amsterdam, The Netherlands – when not out and about gathering user praise and pain points.
