Thanks to DocuSign for such an excellent introduction. I’m very excited to be a part of the company, and look forward to diving right in!
We’re excited to announce an addition to the Developer Programs Team! Julia Ferraioli is DocuSign’s newest Technical Evangelist, coming to DocuSign from the University of Rochester, where she worked on low-cost, technical solutions for blind users.
She also played a key role in launching Rochester’s human-computer interaction group and co-held their first iPhone development workshop.
Prior to her work at Rochester, she was at Microsoft, where she worked on both the front and back ends of an online document sharing and collaboration service. Other past projects have involved everything from cryptography to robotics, and she is also a twice published author in the field of semi-supervised clustering.
So… what excites Julia most about being DocuSign’s Technical Evangelist?
I’ve had the opportunity to use DocuSign “in the wild” a few times now, and the user experience astonishes me – I didn’t have to worry about access to a printer or fax machine, or wonder if my signature was received successfully. The DocuSign experience made all of these concerns irrelevant! Needless to say, I’m a fan, and I’m really excited to enable the developer community to take full advantage of DocuSign.
From looking at the forums and seeing how developers are using the DocuSign API, I clearly see that the community is smart, motivated and passionate. I love working with developers and helping them achieve their goals, and that’s part of my job here at DocuSign! I’m very much looking forward to interacting with the community and getting to know them.
Julia will work closely with DocuSign’s developer community – what does she want to learn from our technical community?
Turns out, Julia wants to learn several things:
I want to learn how the developer community is currently utilizing the API, and how you would like to utilize the API. My goal is to make you as successful as I can, and if there is anything I can do to make your experience better, I’d love to hear about it!
- Do we need to improve our documentation?
- Are there scenarios that you would like to create with DocuSign, but are not quite sure how to go about it?
These are issues that I want to address so that I can improve the developer experience. Also, if there are things we have done in the past that have really helped you (such as webinars, blog entries, etc…), let us know so we can further direct our efforts!
