Courtney Hemphill is a Partner and Tech Lead at Carbon Five in San Francisco, CA. Over the past 10+ years, Courtney has worked on teams of developers and designers using full stack technology on web and mobile projects for clients including Autodesk, Skype, SFMOMA, and Sharethrough.

An outspoken advocate for integrating design processes into quick development cycles, Courtney and the teams at Carbon Five are focused on crafting applications that are tested automatically through code as well as through interactions with real customers.

She often travels to speak and mentor at both design and development conferences such as SXSW, HTML5DevConf, ForwardJS, and GOTO Conferences worldwide. Courtney also finds a healthy amount of time to unplug from the internets, traveling in search of the best rock climbing spots in the world, always returning to her primary stomping ground in Yosemite Valley.
