Ashi Krishnan

Sr. Software Engineer at GitHub

Ashi’s first program printed I LOVE YOU MOM in a colorful infinite loop; she was six at the time, and she was hooked. Her career has found her building projection art for NOAA, reading your email at Google, and spending three years teaching at coding bootcamps. She recently joined Github as a senior engineer, where she’s working on Atom. She’s been studying machine learning over the past several years with the comingled sense of awe and frustration. One day, she will teach a robot how to love; until then, it’s all about classifying cat photos.
