Jenny Han Donnelly is the author of three YUI components:
We’re also inspired by the organizational leadership Jenny has shown in her time at Yahoo. Currently, she’s the lead editor of YUIBlog, bringing technical voices from throughout Yahoo to these pages to share their insights. She has also organized our annual frontend engineering summit at Yahoo, bringing hundreds of Yahoo engineers from around the world together in a rich weeklong technical conference. She’s taught weeklong YUI courses to engineers in the USA, Korea and Japan, and she’s been an integral member of the hack day group at Yahoo that’s such an important part of our engineering culture.
Whether she’s coding, writing, teaching or leading — all of which are aspects of the modern technologist’s job description — Jenny sets a high bar with her intelligence, dedication, imagination and wit. Ada would be proud.
