Hi! My name is Julia Meinwald – I live in NYC too (well, technically Jersey City, now, but I still identify as a “New Yorker” from over ten years in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan.)
I’m really new to this community – I started working as an Open Source Coordinator at Two Sigma Investments last year. My background is not technical at all, so I’ve been trying to sponge up as much as I can. There’s so much to learn, both about the open source products we use and develop at my company, and about open source governance and how the whole ecosystem works.
I went to school for music composition, and am still active in the musical theatre community (if you want a total diversion, you can check out my work here: www.juliameinwald.com) I even got to combine my love of music with my quest to learn more about open source technology by writing a piece on Sonic Pi (http://sonic-pi.net/).
I’m really excited to meet everyone and learn from this great group of people!
