La La Land. The City of Angels.
The City of Los Angeles holds many distinctions. L.A. is the entertainment capital of the world, a cultural mecca boasting more than 100 museums, and a paradise of idyllic weather. From tourist attractions like the Walk of Fame’s collection of stars (numbering more than 2,614 and counting) to career opportunities like those presented in the expanding tech industry, Los Angeles is the place to be.
Constance is a senior software engineer at Splunk, formerly Omnition, contributing to OpenTelemetry. Previous to Omnition, she worked at Lyft as part of the data platform and server networking teams. While at Lyft, Constance built, deployed, and configured Envoy internally, and maintained the open source project.
