Leslie Hawthorn


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.
