Katy Farmer

Katy lives in Oakland, CA with her husband and two dogs (at least one of whom talks to her about fun, technical stuff). She loves to experiment with code, break stuff, and try to fix it. She learned to code at Turing School of Software and Design in Denver, CO, and it gave her the perfect chance to break stuff before she knew how to fix it. Ask her about Ruby, OOP, Go, natural language processing, Russian Literature, Star Wars, Dragon Age, chord progressions. For extra credit, bring some Sour Patch Kids!
