Katie has worn many different hats over the years. She has been a software developer for many languages, systems administrator for multiple operating systems, and speaker on many different topics.
She is currently an SRE at Divio, a Director of both the Python Software Foundation and Django Software Foundation, and is the Conference Director for PyCon Australia. She was awarded the O’Reilly Open Source Award in 2017, and was a finalist for the Red Hat Women in Open Source Award in 2018.
When she’s not changing the world, she enjoys making tapestries, cooking, and seeing just how well various application stacks handle emoji.
