Jessica Kerr loves software because it is the most malleable building material humans have ever created. At Atomist, she develops software for automating software development. She works remotely from St Louis, where she raises two daughters and attends meetups. She also speaks at conferences in the US, Canada, Europe, and Australia (so far). Her grandparents, James and Marti Hefley, were prolific authors; growing up, she promised herself she'd never write a book, because it is too much work. Instead, she blogs and tweets with such enthusiasm that she even has a tattoo of her twitter handle (@jessitron).
