Engineering: a first run experience

There's a code of silence in technology, that tells us that speaking out about wrongdoings also puts us in the wrong. In an effort to tear down that code, I'm speaking out about some of my experiences in my first job out of college, as a software engineer. Sadly, these are only a few of the incidents of sexism that I have to retell about that job, but sexism comes in many forms. I'm hoping that these will help people recognize sexism in its many forms, and help other women feel less alone.

My brother, +Mustafa Alami wrote and illustrated his first children's book, Rabbit's Wit, a beautiful take on a Rumi story. It's available now in iTunes!
Read a sample or download Rabbit's Wit by Mustafa Alami with iBooks.

Guilty pleasure warning, so much pop. These yearly mashups are always impressive.

Story
Introduction
I'm VP of Developer Happiness at Firebase. Firebase is a powerful API to store and sync data in realtime.


I’m was formerly part of the Developer Relations team at Google - we helped developers make incredible things on Google technologies. I led Developer Relations for Project Glass, building technology that’s there when and where you need it but doesn’t get in your way and Chromecast. I’ve also worked on Android, maps, ads and commerce developer products. 

Before Google I was a software engineer and consultant at Accenture, Random Walk Computing, CSC and Oracle.

I call San Francisco, California home and in the winter can be found snowboarding in the Sierras.

My wife and I got married at Atwood ranch in the fall 2011, additionally Julie and her team planed our wedding. Really, we could not have been happier with how everything turned out - the event went off without a hitch, the venue was beautiful - and beautifully decorated. All of the vendors that Julie recommenced and we went with were exceptional - from the food and wait staff to the florist to bar staff to the dj. It's been almost a year and a half later and our guests still tell us what an amazing experience our wedding was, all say its amongst the best wedding they've ever been to. Julie was great for us - we wanted to give her a vision and not have to deal with the tiny details, she suggested several vendors and decore options that really fit what we wanted, was able to change things up when we needed it and took care of all the small details that made the event incredible.

Great views of the field and of the bay from the cheaper "view reserve" seats. An amazing ballpark - only negative is the pricey concessions.

The pizza's here are fantastic - I'd say the best in the city - and really reasonably priced (at least by San Francisco standards). Service when seated is good - no complaints - expect to wait over an hour to get seated at peak times. However, if you're looking to order for pickup or delivery - good luck! - you'll likely call and get a busy signal. On the rare chance that you connect it'll ring forever and if you're supremely lucky enough to actually have someone pickup they'll put you on hold forever (explains the busy signal!).

A great neighborhood cafe, bar and restaurant. Casual feel and friendly staff, awesome sandwiches - I eat here probably once a week. Meatball is highly rated but my favorite sandwiches is their Chicken #1 and Chicken Panini.
