Kris Howard

Developer, systems analyst, digital communicator and all-round crafty lady

Not many people would lug a sewing machine to a hackathon, but Kris Howard has done just that.

Kris has been building websites in one form or another for over twenty years. She’s been a developer, a systems analyst, a blogger, and a podcaster; and now she heads up Engineering Processes at Canva, one of Australia’s fastest growing startups.

But she also loves to knit and sew, and she doesn’t see that as being incongruous with her day job. Kris believes having an adventurous mind allows you to see the surprising connections between 21st century technology and the simple interaction of sticks and string.
