Stephanie is a Program Manager and Designer Developer for Microsoft Edge Developer Experiences and the open source project webhint.io. Her design work is focused on improving the tools developers use to build the web. As a developer and designer advocate for Microsoft Edge, Stephanie is passionate about connecting with the web community to help drive the vision of the future forward. Before Microsoft, Stephanie worked in-house at an agency crafting digital experiences from user experience through front-end development for clients that included Microsoft Corporate, Windows, Bing, The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Honeywell and T-Mobile. In her spare time, she's an amateur photographer and won't say no to listening to disco or a trip to Scotland.
In 2018, the Microsoft Edge team pivoted and adopted the Chromium browser engine -- eliminating gaps in browser interoperability that developers had complained about for years, that hindered the Developer Experience. No longer playing catch up, the team can focus on building features that delight. In this talk, Stephanie will talk about the different ways the Developer Experience team is gathering feedback and conducting research to improve Developer Experience and drive innovation in the browser.
