autumn crossan cares a lot about code. more specifically, they care a lot about elegance, maintainability, and concision in the code they write. in their development work at cloud city, they have the opportunity to consistently ship elegant, maintainable, and concise code, and that makes them very happy. they've been fortunate to speak at several conferences and meetups across the US—most recently at seattle code camp and react boston, speaking about functional programming and unit testing respectively. they also do a fair amount of writing and playing music, for pleasure and for business. their code lives at github, their writings (along with a lot of great content from other cloud city folks!) can be found at the cloud city blog, and their music mostly lives on cramped bar stages in the greater boston area.
