Janelle Arty Starr
Janelle is a NFJS Tour Speaker, author of the book, Idea Flow: How to Measure the PAIN in Software Development, and founder of Open Mastery, a free-to-join industry peer mentorship network focused on data-driven software mastery.
She founded Open Mastery to rally the industry in working together, and learning together to break down the wall of ignorance between managers and developers that drives our software projects into the ground. By making the pain visible with Idea Flow, we have a universal definition of effective practice, a universal language for sharing our experiences, and an opportunity to learn together like never before. Open Mastery is about taking the industry to a whole new level of effectiveness by working together.
Aside from Open Mastery, Janelle has been working with New Iron for the last 10 years, as a developer, consultant, and now as CTO. Her development background is specialized in data-intensive analytic systems from financial core processors to factory automation, supply chain optimization and statistical process control (SPC). Her consulting work has focused on Continuous Delivery infrastructure, database automation, test automation strategies, and helping companies identify and solve their biggest problems.
