  • Tell us a little bit about your background and how you got into the tech world
  • What is hardware hacking and how do you get interested in something like that?

  • What advice would you give to women in tech who want to teach others but might feel a bit nervous about starting out?
  • You're a co-author of JavaScript Robotics: Building NodeBots. What was your experience like co-authoring a book? Was it born out of a mutual interest in Robotics?
  • You created an open source library for controlling OLED screens. Can you tell us a little bit about it and some of the things you can do with it? How did you come up with the idea?
  • Can you talk to us about some of the things you're working on at Stripe?
  • Was it a natural transition for you to go into management? How were you able to balance between staying technical and coding, but also be in a leadership position for projects and your team?
