Jennifer “Jenn” Strater is an experienced engineering leader who is dedicated to community work and contributes to new and innovative technologies such as Spring REST Docs, Codenarc, Apache Groovy, and Gradle. Jenn made her career as a conference speaker at large events such as the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, SpringOne Platform, Devoxx Belgium, and many others. Videos of some of these talks are available on the 'my talks' list on her YouTube channel.
Her strong ties with the developer community including running the Groovy Community Slack Team, leadership experience within several organizations including as a founder of GR8Ladies (now GR8DI) and committee member for GR8Conf EU and US, and mentoring younger developers have prepared her for new leadership challenges.
She just finished a tour with the Biden for President Tech team. Being down in the trenches was a great experience especially when changing the world. Now, it's time to get back to leading teams.
Feel free to contact her about leadership opportunities or open-source side projects in Groovy, Grails, Gradle, or any other technology listed on her LinkedIn profile. She is also always available to connect for advice, mentoring, or networking. Lastly, this isn't updated very frequently so please follow her on twitter @codeJENNerator for the latest announcements.
