I'm Courtney. I am a software developer, language nerd (human language, that is), sci-fi fan, music head, and a Vermonter living in Minnesota. I'm a complete sucker for animals, a begrudging mechanical keyboard user (Magicforce 68 with Browns, if you must know), and I'm a certified beer judge (yes, that's a real thing).
Learning has to be a top priority for us techies, as does supporting one another. I'm passionate about connecting people and being a champion for others, especially the quiet ones.
