Katherine is an operations engineer at Etsy. She got her start in programming with TI-80 calculators back when Geocities was still cool, and these days has opinions on things like ‘the cloud’ and ‘DevOps’. Before escaping to the world of operations, she spent a few years doing QA and systems engineering in the corporate world. She lives in Brooklyn with a perfectly reasonable number of cats, and in her spare time can often be found rock-climbing or making hot sauce.
