Danielle Leong, dinosaur

I’m an Oakland-based software engineer with a passion for building safer, consensual software. Consensual software follows a simple philosophy: ask for permission first, rather than forgiveness later in order to build safer products. Follow along at consensualsoftware.com or on Twitter.

I’m the creator and founder of Feerless, an app that provides crowd-sourced, preemptive notifications for Netflix watchers with PTSD. You can download it on the Chrome store here!

I’m currently an application engineer at GitHub, working to build healthier, safer communities.

I’m passionate about increasing diversity and inclusion in tech, and I was one of the founding members of Skittles, Twilio’s diversity initiative. In my spare time, I teach public high school students how to code through the non-profit organization Mission Bit, and volunteer at Level the Playing Field Institute (LPFI) hackathons.

In my spare spare time, I eat lots of pizza, taking artsy fartsy photos, and growing impressively gross callouses on my hands from rock climbing.
