Jessica Parsons


Sauntering Beyond Swagger with Open Source Tools


Jessica Parsons has spent half her life teaching, and a quarter of it developing for the web. She now combines those passions as a documentation engineer at Netlify. Outside of her day job, she teaches workshops and develops curriculum for Girl Develop It and organizes meetups for Write the Docs Bay Area. Away from a computer screen, she’s baked and decorated wedding cakes, designed and sewn prize-winning garments, and taken apart and repaired all sorts of home appliances. She has even had someone dress up as her for Halloween! She lives in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area and enjoys exploring its natural wonders with her shiba inus, Petunia and Monty.
