Lyndsey Padget

Sr Software Engineer
Kansas City, MO

Lyndsey Padget is a Senior Software Engineer at Freightview in Kansas City. With 12+ years of software and web development experience at both mega-corporations and startups, she specializes in designing maintainable and intuitive RESTful APIs. Java runs through her veins (the language and the beverage), but her latest obsession is NodeJS. Trained in agile methodologies, she occasionally stunt-doubles as a project manager (and also, because she is bossy). Lyndsey is involved in local organizations that encourage women, young and old, to explore careers in math and science. She believes that the difference between a decent software engineer and a great one often has little to do with code.

Lyndsey's Sessions

  • Badass 101

    Would Chuck Norris ask you to come hear him speak at a conference? No, he wouldn't. He would TELL you that you're coming, and then roundhouse kick you in the face if you gave him any more lip. "What would Chuck Norris do?" is a philosophy this session will cover in depth. Other topics include: badass vs a-hole, human duck typing, the art of [not] caring, instrumentality, and what your facial hair says about you. You won't learn any new code in this session, but you might unleash a Pandora's box of awesomeness that will change the way you interact with your coworkers forever.
