Community Engineer, Red Hat

Web site | @mchua

Mel is a hacker. Over time, Mel has progressed from hacking hardware (electrical engineer) to code (software developer) to organizational cultures (community QA team lead). She now hacks communities of practice as a member of Red Hat’s Community Architecture team. These days, Mel spends most of her time with on open source in education, teaching professors how to teach open source, leading the Fedora Marketing team, and generally getting things out of the way of people who want to Get Stuff Done. In her hypothetically existent amounts of free time, she volunteers for Sugar Labs and works on undergraduate engineering education reform, occasionally at the same time.
