Sessions: What’s Up With Android
Tiffany Trusty has always been obsessed with tech! She was one of the first women accepted to Rose-Hulman and the 2nd to graduate from the previously all male, #1 in its class, engineering school.
After college, she began her 16 year career with Motorola. Through the years Tiffany got to experience every angle of software engineering: effort estimations, writing requirements, design documents, implementing the code, unit testing, system testing, automated testing, and maintenance. She also got to experience several areas of leadership: process lead, security training lead, team lead, and project manager. After 10 years, Tiffany was moved up to the senior architects group where she utilized her skills in Product Security and served as the Design for Testability and Information Assurance specialist for her product line.
While at Motorola, Tiffany obtained her Master’s Degree in Engineering Management and maintained a small entrepreneurship spark through her website development company. Through Tiffany’s own company, she was able to keep her coding skills sharp in a time when her primary job required many high level documents and numerous meetings.
After leaving Motorola, Tiffany dove, head first, into Android for 2 years. – “MAN does Android move fast?! But that’s why it’s so much fun… never a dull moment.”
Tiffany is ALWAYS supporting the Women in STEM initiative, especially when it comes to the next generation of nerdy girls. She has been on the board with Women & Hi Tech since 2011 as their Communications officer (and unofficial Tech Godess). She is also a member of the National Center for Women in IT Affinity Group Alliance, where she greatly enjoys donating her time and energy to their Aspirations in Computing Awards that encourages middle school / high school girls to pursue a career in tech.
