In this episode, I speak with Jessica Kerr. Jessica makes software to help others write software to help themselves build software at Atomist. Her adventures include advocating for functional programming and systems thinking at software conferences around the world, but also keeping two children alive and podcasting on "Greater Than Code". We touched on her introduction to public speaking. We talked about balancing a family life and traveling for work. We segwayed into networking and the power of people and landed on mentoring/mentorship.
