Cat Allman
Program Manager
I have been involved with the free and Open Source community since the mid 1980s, including stints at Mt Xinu, Sendmail, Inc, and the USENIX Association. Along with speaking at conferences including LinuxTag, SCALE, OSCON, SELF, SIGCSE, LCA, and the Ohio Linux Fest, I co-chaired the 1st Open Source Track at the 2010 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, and moderated a panel there. My current job as manager of the outreach team in the Open Source Programs Office at Google requires me to evaluate countless sponsorship pitches.
