Shaving the Golden Yak



Jessica Kerr provides reasons to spend some time smoothing the development experience, and clues for where to spend that time in ways that help the entire team.


Jessica Kerr develops software in Scala, Elm, and far too many other language systems. She’s fascinated by socio-technical systems, meta-automation, and socks. She travels from St. Louis, MO to learn and speak about programming at conferences. Her older daughter wants to be a programmer, while her younger daughter wishes she wouldn’t travel so much.

About the conference

Joy of coding is all about the love for programming. Learn about new and emerging technologies from companies and academia.
