Clare is not a developer and is a relative newbie to the open source world. She made her first PR earlier this year. She got involved because she believes that open source is a way to construct alternative systems of innovation and remove some of the friction that is plaguing current efforts of "digital transformation". She has learned open source can help build trust, promote openness and collaboration, and provide alternative pathways to get involved with technology.
