Episode 8 — Becky Yoose

Today, I’m chatting with Becky Yoose, Library Applications And Systems Manager at The Seattle Public Library. She’s also active in a variety of librarian communities, including code4lib, LibTechWomen, Troublesome Catalogers and Magical Metadata Fairies, and mashcat, plus the documentation writers’ group Write The Docs. She has a hat.
