Hi! I'm Jennifer Konikowski. Though I got my degree in Industrial Engineering, I currently work as a software developer. I primarily code in Ruby/Rails, but I've been known to dabble in Scala, Rust, Java, Perl, and Python.

I lived in Atlanta for 7 years and was a founding member of PyLadies Atlanta. Soon after I moved to Boston in 2012, I founded PyLadies Boston, an organization dedicated to bringing more women into the open-source community in Boston. I was also a founding member and co-organizer of Boston Ruby Women.

I moved to Pittsburgh in 2017 and have started All The Nerdy Ladies Pittsburgh and help host some events for Girl Develop It.

I am also fairly active on Jennifer Konikowski's DEV Profile and AskQuestions.Tech. Occasionally, I answer questions on StackOverflow, but not too often.

In my free time, I try to stay active by running, usually around Frick Park. When I'm not working or exercising, you can often find me hanging out with my husband at Hidden Harbor. I'm also super passionate about politics and I try to read whenever I can.
