Web Directions Summit 2017

Elle Meredith

The Latest in Browser Developer Tools

Elle Meredith Co-founder Blackmill

Since Firebug, followed by the native developer tooling in the browser, the capability of these tools in our modern browsers has grown extraordinarily in both depth and breadth.

But even keeping up with what these tools are capable of is itself hard work. In this session, Elle Meredith will bring us up to speed with some of the more overlooked but highly valuable aspects of how we can improve performance, code quality and more.

Elle Meredith

Elle is a full stack web developer with more than 10 years experience writing Ruby and Rails. Currently, she is a consultant at Blackmill. Before Blackmill, she was a Development Director in the New York City office of thoughtbot.

Elle's current project is developing and running Hooroo's Engineering Academy. The Academy will take on four very junior developers, and will work with them for six months, covering programming fundamentals, clean code, refactoring, and agile workflows. As part of the project, she streamlined the interview process at Hooroo to be more accommodating and welcoming to juniors.
