My name is Kristina Chodorow and this is my personal website. It’s mostly a blog about technical or geeky topics.
I’m a software engineer at Google and I live in New York City with my wonderful husband, Andrew.
I currently work on the Build Tools team at Google. I love learning about programming languages, operatings systems, and distributed systems.
I’ve done a lot of work on MongoDB’s replication system and other internals. I wrote the PHP driver, which is now maintained by Derick and Hannes. I also used to maintain the Perl driver, which is now handled by Mike Friedman.
In my spare time, I maintain Noodlin, a brainstorming tool. It’s basically a digital corkboard that helps visual people organize ideas on a screen as easily as they would on, say, a whiteboard (or an actual corkboard).
I’ve given talks at conferences and meetups worldwide, including OSCON, FOSDEM, Latinoware, YAPC::NA, and MongoSF. I’m not giving talks anymore.
You can find me on Twitter or irc.freenode.net with the nick kchodorow. My email is k dot chodorow at gmail dot com. Do not send me time-sensitive messages on Facebook, I never check it. Email or tweet is much more likely to be read in a timely fashion.
