Coming from a self-taught background, Sarah got her first break into commercial development at a large London ISP when the dev manager found out everyone was playing an online PHP game she had co-written. After that, she worked at several agencies, developing sites for FTSE 250 clients, developing a love of WordPress, and working with Symfony. Now, as a developer on the WordPress.com VIP team at Automattic, she is responsible for looking after sites for many well-known global brands, as well as developer hiring for the team.
Outside the technical world, Sarah is a big fan of both beer and homebrewing. She is a qualified beer judge and enjoys teaching people about beer and brewing.
