Hi. I’m Lizzy.

I am a Senior Software Development Engineer at Mastercard. I started this blog to “fill the gaps” of the blogosphere: writing posts that would have saved me a lot of time if they had existed when I ran into the problem myself!

Favorite posts:

  • An illustrated guide to Autofac. This post was a labor of love. I’ve used Autofac for years but never had a great conceptual model for how it worked. This post was me working through how to think about thinking about Autofac.
  • Using underdocumentated features. As a frequent user of underdocumented features, this post is my attempt at setting a reader up for success in what can sometimes be a frustrating situation.
  • Learn MSBuild. This 4-part series was another post trying to give the reader a conceptual model for MSBuild (which I <3).

Public speaking:

In my free time, I love reading about city design, walking around Arlington, looking at new building permits, and participating in local government. I also enjoy reading about history and volunteering at church.

P.S. I am looking to speak at more meet-ups and conferences in the future. Please feel free to reach out via Twitter direct message, if you think I would be a good fit for your event.
