Hiya! I'm Monica.



One day I tweeted too much about sportsball and as Twitter penance I promised I would write a blog post about C++ protipz. I didn't have a blog, so here's one about things I find interesting, which may include, but not be limited to, squirrels.

I've been a developer at Google for three years. I work on Polymer, and have probably at least once broken the Internet for you. Before this, I used to work on Chrome. Do you know that little button that has appeared in top right corner of your browser? Yeah, I did that. (Did you also know you can set its text to emoji? NOW YOU DO).

I do a lot of pretty silly side projects, mostly related to emoji. I also talk a bunch at conferences about serious topics, but only if they relate to cats, and will probably eat all of your Oreos, if you have any.

I have a GitHub AMA repo where you can ask me things, because I heard that's what the cool kids do nowadays. Or you can send me an email. Or both.

Because the internet is a big place, standard disclaimers about these being my views and not my employer's apply.
