Jennifer currently works at Pluralsight as a Software Engineering Architect. Their mission is to democratize technology skills around the world. She oversees the coordination of development between two of Pluralsight's business units, which include over 20 different bounded contexts. She started out working summers at a small telecom company quality testing interfaces, writing documentation, and editing audio files. In college she worked for a technical analysis software company creating websites and managing educational content (think stock market analysis and education back in the wild west of the Internet). She's created real estate and financial engines and written many tools to process massive amounts of information working with people from all over the world. When she's not working she likes to explore, play and make with family and friends - outdoors, arduino, art, sculpture, and song.

Developing Distributed Autonomy at Pluralsight (Talk, EventSourcing 2020)
by Jennifer Carlston

Pluralsight uses a combination of methods to deliver data across our polyglot, domain driven system. We've learned a lot along the way and would love to share how we distribute responsibility, architect our system, and implement practices that deliver value. We think we've done a lot of things well and want to help other teams feel empowered to change their world for the better.

Modeling Lean Systems (Hands-on Lab, Main Conference)
by Jennifer Carlston, Indu Alagarsamy

(This is a hands-on lab with limited capacity. You should receive an invitation to sign up for your favourite session at latest one week before the conference. Capacity of this session = 72)

A professional engineer builds the right tool at the right time. How can you know that you're building a system that will deliver value to your customers? Does everyone understand the processes being built around your organization? In this workshop you'll learn how to visualize and model processes around customer need and event storm using the principles of Lean Flow.

Engineers will come out of this workshop with a process blueprint for their code. We will use human centered design and iterative practices to visualize, communicate, and measure the value delivered within every context of their domain.
