Samantha Stoller

Senior Staff Software Engineer @ Slack

Decidedly American, but proud to be born and raised in the UK, Samantha immigrated to the Southwestern United States and soon after inherited her first personal computer. An early Internet adopter, she dialed into BBSes and shell accounts in the early 90s and built her first website around the time JavaScript was submitted to ECMA. When not refactoring codebases, Samantha folds modular origami for her blog CreasedReality.com and frequently DJs at Bay Area events.
