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, and received an O’Reilly Open Source Award in 2010. She’s well known for creating cultures of collaboration and helping newcomers to the open source community thrive.
In August 2013, she joined Elasticsearch as director of developer relations, where she manages the company’s outreach efforts. She works from Elasticsearch’s EU HQ in Amsterdam, The Netherlands – when not out and about gathering user praise and pain points. You can follow her adventures on Twitter.
