Kirsten Hunter is an unapologetic hacker and passionate advocate for the development community. Her technical interests range from graph databases to cloud services, and her experience supporting and evangelizing REST APIs has given her a unique perspective on developer success. In her copious free time she’s a gamer, fantasy reader, and all around rabble-rouser. Code samples, recipes, and philosophical musings can be found here.

Other than this blog, you can peruse my LinkedIn profile (I’m an API Evangelist for Akamai), you can read the story I wrote about becoming involved in the open source community, the (somewhat hilarious) tale of my first technical presentation, the paper for my silly web patent (from 1996 – check out the awesome Yahoo! screenshot’s from SGI’s Mozilla browser). You can find pictures people have taken about me on Flickr.
