Tara Hernandez (they/them)
Tara Hernandez is a specialist in software engineering infrastructure and was an early promoter of what came to be known as the Continuous Integration revolution. Their most notable stint was at Netscape Communications Corporation where they initially helped develop new developer tools such as Tinderbox and Bugzilla, both of which were later released to the public as open source along with the Netscape browser codebase as part of the creation of Mozilla.org.
At one point they ended up at Pixar Animation Studios where their team reinvented much of the development infrastructure to handle the challenges of writing software in a film production environment. Tara is now at Google, working to help create a really cool cloud developer platform. In their copious amounts of free time they blogs hopefully useful things about engineering management, is a member of the Technical Oversight Committee for the Continuous Delivery Foundation, is an Associate Board member of Women Who Code, and hosts the ‘Women Who Code Radio’ podcast.
