ServerlessTalk has a super special guest for our second episode of season two.
Introducing the veritable Charity Majors, also known as MipsyTipsy on Twitter. She’s the CTO of Honeycomb, former systems engineer and manager at Facebook, Parse, and Linden Lab, and the co-author of “Database Reliability Engineering.”
But you already know who she is.
Favorite language? Bash, deal with it.
Biggest role model? Anne of Green Gables, maybe?
Gadget you can’t live without? Sadly, it is my phone.
First computer? Linux laptop. I was working as a systems administrator for four or five years before I owned a computer.
Favorite game? I learned all of my management skills running the test server for Everquest.
Favorite thing to do away from a computer? Walking
Best advice you’ve ever received? Probably to come to San Francisco. I grew up in Idaho, and I was given the advice to drop out of school and move to San Francisco.
