Former musical theatre actress and Hackbright Academy graduate, Chloe is now a Developer Evangelist at Sentry. Pre-Hackbright, she spent her nights and weekends performing in the Bay Area as a singer/actress and worked in tech by day. To support her theatre career, she started to learn to code on her own through online resources. Perhaps the only engineer you’ll meet who has been in “Hairspray”, “Xanadu”, and “Jerry Springer: the Opera”- she is passionate about bringing people with non-traditional backgrounds into the world of tech. If you’re trying to place her face, yes- she’s the young woman giving the awkward thumbs up in the “What It’s Like to be a Woman at a Tech Conference” article (which she also wrote). Chloe is also the organizer of TechLadyPicnic (a SF women in tech meet-up group), as well as the hostess/organizer of Sentry Scouts (a camp themed monthly tech meet-up… yes there are patches for each meet-up). In February of 2018 she was named one of the “200+ Thought Leaders in Crypto and Blockchain” and still knows absolutely nothing about Blockchain… however, a quick Google search of her will provide you with getting started with Docker videos, observability articles, theatre reviews, tech blogs, and videos of her singing- enjoy!
You can’t spell “introvert” without “IoT”, which is why Chloe is here to show us how she used Azure IoT services to help her get out of not-so-fun social situations. In this talk, she’ll walk through how you can use a simple Flic button and Azure to save yourself from your next awkward convo.
