Courtney Christensen, Backend Web Developer, Linden Lab
Courtney Christensen is a software developer and team lead for Linden Lab. These days she writes in Golang, python, and bash with her team’s microservices living on Docker containers in AWS instances. She arrived at Linden through a circuitous route of government contracting and cybersecurity. Outside of work, Courtney volunteers with Computers4Kids, GDI, Women in Tech Charlottesville, and Tech Girls. She is also occasionally involved in Habitat for Humanity and community theatre. Through all this work and volunteering, she’s equally at home wielding a keyboard, soldering iron, hammer, or paintbrush. Courtney loves figuring out how things work and how to make them work better.
