I’m re-reading Playing Big: Find Your Voice, Your Mission, Your Message by Tara Mohr. I’m at a certain transition point in my career journey which is taking me to a new role, a new team, and a new company. Reading Playing Big gives me a new framework, separate from Lean In, to think about how women shape careers and journey through life. And my journey has been and continues to be a great one: after a lot of consideration, I’m taking a compelling new opportunity at Cisco.
Rackspace has been a wonderful home for over five years, and I want to dive even deeper into developer experience: developer tools, outreach, and support (including docs, naturally). I want to study developer workloads for OpenStack infrastructure. I’m super excited for the amount of learning I can do at Cisco by joining their cloud group. I’ll still be working on OpenStack upstream and looking for ways to apply what I learn.
