is the resident linguist at Buildkite. When she’s not crafting exciting ways to describe new Buildkite features, you’ll find her hanging out in bouldering gyms or with her nose in a book.
is a user experience designer & front-end developer at Clover. She's into tech, but, you know, only as a friend. Fun fact: Squirrels lose more than half of the nuts they hide.

Decompress is a community day for designers and developers run by the CSSConf and JSConf team. Our focus is squarely set on creating an all-inclusive space for attendees to learn, share and create. Topics covered are a blend of CSSConf and JSConf, and will even feature some of the same speakers.
This year, in addition to talks, we will have free informal workshops running all day in one large space as a semi-guided hack day. The workshop topics will include:
"Merging Data and Art"
Ri Liu will show you the power data can have to ignite our imagination and engage us in important social issues. Using her tool of choice, D3.js, you will follow her lead, creating beautiful, interactive art from data. "Building Mobile Apps Using Web Tech"
Charlie Gleason will amaze you with how he has combined WebGL and multi-streaming videos and get you started on your own experiments using create-react-app and Three.js. "Exposing Your Hidden WebVR Superpowers"
Ruth John and Matt McKegg will have you creating AV performances using the browser and the Web MIDI, Web Audio and Web Animation APIs. Can't wait to get started? Go check out the Web Audio School.
Entry is free for all CSSConf and/or JSConf attendees. Otherwise, Decompress tickets are only $25 and include coffee, lunch and snacks. It'll be one hell of a day, don't miss out.
