Introducing Our Newest CDF Ambassador – Tiffany Jachja

By May 26, 2020June 5th, 2020Blog

Hi Readers,

2020 has been a crazy year, yet the opportunities remain to connect, learn, and share throughout our communities, and so I’m thrilled to join the Continuous Delivery Foundation. As a newly minted member of the CDF Ambassadors program, I look forward to getting to know everyone. 

A little bit more about me: my name is Tiffany Jachja. I’ve lived in Maryland almost all my life (go Old Bay!). One of my goals is to become a catalyst for better software delivery. 

Me, the one time I decided to leave Maryland and live 2,000 miles away from home. 

I work as an evangelist at Harness. This is my team.

We believe in empowering developers to move fast without breaking things.

I joined at the start of 2020, excited to travel, connect, and share my experiences around software delivery. 

Of course with the shelter in place policies, the travel bit did not pan out. But I’m grateful and fortunate for the opportunities to contribute to digitally! 

Observe2020 was a day-long conference held in April about Observability. 

ONUG Digital Live was ONUG’s first virtual event held in May 2020. 

I’ve been enjoying the fact that many industry events and sessions are now free to attend. It gives people who normally would not be able to attend an event, the opportunity to grow new skills and learn more about specific topics.

As you can tell, I do enjoy being on stage.I look forward to a healthier and safer time. 

I’m grateful for all the had opportunities I’ve had to help organizations and teams accelerate their DevOps journeys. It’s very rewarding to be a part of a team that’s hit their stride and can deliver effectively.

Before joining Harness, I was a consultant at Red Hat. I focused on cloud-native application development, so helping enterprises adopt and work with applications living in the cloud. I spent the latter half of my time at Red Hat, focusing on DevOps practices and culture. 

It’s important to work with your people, processes, and technology properly when going on transformation journeys.

An area we can improve on within the tech space is sharing stories and leveraging the experiences of others. 

I believe becoming a CDF Ambassador gives me the opportunities to help drive that mission further. 

Stay passionate, caring, and safe during these times. 

Cheers,

-Tiffany
