Meet Shavonn!

Name: Shavonn Brown

Shavonn Brown
Grafana Labs Developer Shavonn Brown

Current location/time zone: I am in Atlanta, Georgia, in the U.S. Eastern timezone, daylight savings and all that.

What do you do at Grafana Labs? I am a developer on the plugins team. I do frontend and backend development.

What open source projects do you contribute to? Does Grafana count? I’ve probably actually only contributed to an open source project once despite the fact that I have attended an open source conference. I love the idea. I’ve just not found a project I was super passionate about and I’ve also got time limitations.

What are your GitHub and Twitter handles? On GitHub, I am shavonn, and on Twitter, I am @DevWithClaws.

What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time, I spend time with my family, watch obscene amounts of Netflix/Hulu, play with our dog, and try new things.

Do you like to code in silence, with music or ambient noise on your headphones, or with people talking around you? I either code with my noise-canceling headphones on, listening to music or an audio book, or I have Netflix on in the background.

Spaces or tabs? Whichever one the person with the strongest opinion prefers because it doesn’t really matter. Get your IDE’s EditorConfig plugin and enjoy life.
