Amanda Laucher has been working with technology her entire life. Some of her favorite childhood memories include working with punch cards alongside her grandmother or learning Morse code from her dad. Solving complex business problems with code is her passion, mostly using statically typed FP languages. After many years in consulting she decided that making some old rich guy more money wasn’t satisfying so she took on the Enterprise Architect role at Measured Progress. Currently she's at Neo4j. When she isn't busy building software to advance educational technology, you can probably find her in a bar discussing intricacies of languages, development processes or American football.
