The Closing Keynoter is… Jessica McKellar!
I could not think of a better way to announce Jessica than on Ada Lovelace day, as she is a personal STEM heroine of mine. Jessica serves on the PSF’s board of directors, is an entrepreneur and open source developer, and leads the hugely successful Boston Python Workshop. Her open source contributions and actions have been huge for the Python community. She contributes to OpenHatch and Twisted, among other projects, and shares the Workshop materials, which have been used by many to run workshops in their own communities. Her contributions have also extended to writing, including the second edition of Twisted Networking Essentials and contributions to The Architecture of Open Source Applications.
