Hi there!! 👋

Who I am

🐭 Tamara Temple, aka tamouse

  • 😄 Pronouns: She/her/hers, they/them are also good
  • 💻 Senior Staff Software engineer
  • 🖌️ Watercolourist
  • 👩 Mom to two wonderful, grown women that are changing the world
  • Fun fact: I wrote my first software app in the summer of 1969, a lunar landing game written in BASIC and stored on punched paper tape, using a tty-33 teletype!

  • helping traditionally underserved and marginalized people wanting to get in software development, learning technology and how to navigate these spaces that have traditionally been hostile
  • #causeascene academy, and becoming an anti-racist
  • Gathering and disseminating the product / project lore of a company, in order to help people onboard
  • Creating an impetus for learning, sharing, collaborating, and cummunity around software engineering, both in and out of work
  • Leveling up underrepresented and marginalized people in tech, helping them thrive in the tech world

🧭 My guiding principles

Adopted from #causeascene:

  1. Tech is Not Neutral, Nor is it Apolitical
  2. Intention without Strategy is Chaos
  3. Lack of Inclusion is a Risk/Crisis Management Issue
  4. Prioritize the Most Vulnerable
