Glenda and the Grumpy Fuzzball

Jessica McKellar

I am a startup founder, software engineer, and open source developer living in San Francisco, California.

I enjoy the Internet, networking, low-level systems engineering, relational databases, tinkering on electronics projects, and contributing to and helping other people contribute to open source software.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world" may be clich├ęd, but what can I say, I believe in it. I am committed to applying my skills, in individual and collective efforts, to improve the world. Right now, this means I spend a lot of time volunteering, engaging technologists about education, and empowering effective people and initiatives in my capacity as a Director for the Python Software Foundation.

A few recent initiatives I'm proud of.
