My name’s Paddy. I live in Tri-Cities, Washington with my husband and our puppy. I write software, give talks, and inflict my opinions on anyone who will listen.
I believe software engineers have a responsibility to their users, and that we have a responsibility to not make things that will do harm.
I often spend a lot of time, energy, and money on writing software to solve minor annoyances, because I’m offended on principle.
I’ve been told that I’m overly idealistic and have been accused of being an impractical zealot. I’m at peace with these designations.
