Amandine is a software engineer at Dropbox, improving continuous integration and automated release for the desktop codebase. Previously, Amandine worked on Dropbox’s desktop application and malware detection APIs at Juniper Networks. She has always been interested in trying to understand, codify, and leverage complex systems, but started off studying physics and statistics at Swarthmore College. Amandine found her way to full time programming via the Recurse Center, where she first started writing Python. She’s used Python pretty much every week since, and this spring she got to speak at PyCon on error handling.
