Developer Advocacy Lead - IBM Quantum Computing
As IBM Quantum’s Developer Advocacy Team Lead, Abby manage san interdisciplinary team of developer advocates, software developers and quantum researchers, focused on maintaining and promoting IBM Quantum Software. She started her journey into Quantum back in 2020, when she started contributing code to Qiskit, IBM’s Open Source SDK for quantum computing. Prior to working in quantum Abby was a full stack web developer, but always enjoyed helping other people write good code as much as she enjoyed writing code herself, which is what led her to pursue a career in Developer Relations. As a primarily self taught software developer who hasn’t studied physics since high school, Abby never thought she would end up in the field that she's in, and she's passionate about encouraging people from any background to pursue their interest in technology.
