Event Information

At her first software engineering job, Tessa Mero had to travel to China to demo the app she built alone to her CEO. Hours before the meeting, she found a major reputation-destroying bug in the app and panicked. In this Session, Tessa will share what she did next - a critical lesson that reminds us all that "no one is an island," especially not in software development.


Tessa Mero is a Developer Advocate at Cloudinary. She regularly organizes meetups, such as APIs, Vue.js, JAMStack, and Developer Relations. In the past, she has contributed to a leadership team for the open source Joomla! Project. She organized a PHP Conference and founded the API City Conference. She also is an avid career mentor and has helped countless developers become successful. On her free time, she enjoys video games, fitness, camping, and KBBQ.
