Kate Donahue

Developer, MakerBot

, github , personal site

Kate is a software developer at MakerBot and bootcamp grad.

Description

She was trained to be a web developer. But months after graduating from bootcamp, she's at Makerbot, helping build the software that their 3D printers need to do their job. It's an interesting change -- she's using python instead of ruby, and learned C++ too. We talk about what it's like to be a software developer in a world of hardware, how the two jobs compare, and what some of the challenges are.
