Hello, my name is Alyssa Galarneau. My pronouns are she/her. I am a Multi-Cloud Sr. Software Developer who works a lot with digital video encoding and the delivery of it to users and am currently employed at a large media conglomerate. I am very passionate about Software Development, Tabletop RPGs, and LGBTQ+ rights, which will be the majority of what I will be writing about. I am somewhat active on social media, so please don’t feel afraid to say hello!

Currently I am quite happy with where I am, however, if there is a position in Seattle (or remote) that uses rust feel free to reach out to me.

The one software problem I’d love to “solve”:

Is creating a global scale video platform, granted YouTube, Netflix, and Apple have already solved it for them. My dream would be to create a totally open source platform that others would be able to use. I will likely do a few posts on this very topic!

Languages I’ve used in some (Professional or FOSS) capacity:

All Language icons (save for Java, which is just the coffee emoji, and scala which came from their website) are pulled from WikiMedia. Which I’d like to thank them for the SVG Icons.


Most of my skills are creating multi-cloud RESTful microservices that are either serverless or containerized in docker / kubernetes.
