Rob and Jason are joined by Jackie Kay from Marble to discuss the use of C++ in the Robotics industry and some of the unique challenges in Robotics development.

After spending her childhood wanting to become a novelist, Jackie switched over from writing stories to writing code during college. She graduated from Swarthmore College in 2014 with a Bachelor's in Computer Science and went on to work at the Open Source Robotics Foundation for two years, supporting Gazebo, a physics simulator for robotics R&D, and ROS, an open source application framework for robotics development. She recently started as an early employee at Marble in San Francisco, a startup working on autonomous delivery.

Jackie was a speaker at CppCon 2015 and 2016 and a volunteer at C++ Now 2016 and frequently attends the Bay Area ACCU meetups. Her hobbies include rock climbing, travelling, and reading (books, not just blog posts).
