Mary is a software engineer on the Infrastructure team at Chronosphere, where her main focus is making their engineers more efficient. Previously worked for Uber in Denmark, where she discovered a serious passion for building good tools for engineers and improving her skills at the foosball table. Mary is a natural storyteller with the ability to bring complex topics into focus for all levels of understanding.
"To build or not to build?" is the question you have to ask yourself often if you work on the Infrastructure team. When Chronosphere was just 1.5 years old, we decided to build our own deployment system. Two years after making this decision, I would like to share with you why we did it, how we did it, and the lessons we've learned along the way.
