Hello! My name is Jessica Sachs.I go by jess she/her pronouns.
I write open-source developer tools for the web.
I’m currently at Cypress as a Staff Eng. where I design and lead the development of the Cy Component Test Runner. I’m a Vue team member, working on the Vue testing ecosystem. I’m a contributor and enthusiast of both Vitest and Vite.
Recently I re-launched a fork of Faker.js after it was (infamously) abandoned in January 2022.
A few times a year, I teach workshops at conferences in the US and sometimes abroad. Usually about Vue, but sometimes about other stuff – working with bundlers, building style guides, or refactoring legacy code.
