AcquiaU Session: 
2015 Summer Session

Socially Responsible Technology

Janelle has spent the last 5 years in the San Francisco Bay Area as a Firmware Engineer at Oracle. Her previous time in the Bay State was spent getting a Computer Engineering Bachelor’s degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and working for Sun Microsystems. Janelle learned about AcquiaU at a storytelling event in Cambridge (Women in Tech: A Story Slam) and is really excited to jump into Drupal and into Acquia. While her experience is mostly C programming and scripting, she has learned some LAMP, PHP, SQL, Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, RSpec, Javascript, and Postgresql over the years. While at Acquia, Janelle hopes to redirect her career so as to be able to contribute to socially responsible businesses.
