    Michael Greer is a genius.  No really! Michael was an actual Genius at Apple! Nowadays, he's the Head of Software and Platform at Cloudscene.  You may not have heard of Cloudscene and if that's the case, we're thrilled to be able to introduce you to such a cool company!

    Cloudscene is part of the Soda group and they're creating a data-driven marketplace that transforms the way businesses buy and sell network services.

    Microsoft (Clipchamp) 🥞 Jacqueline Hardy (Senior Software Engineering Manager)

    Jacqueline Hardy was the Engineering Manager of Brisbane success story Clipchamp. And then...  in  September 2021, Clipchamp were acquired by Microsoft (have ya heard of them?). Now, Jacquie is the Senior Software Engineering Manager for Clipchamp as part of the massive ecosystem (with over 200,000 employees) that is Microsoft.

    So what happens when your workplace is acquired by one of the biggest companies in the world? What impact does this have on your team, your tech stack and the way you contribute to the product?

    Jacquie was there for the whole acquisition ride and this week, she sits down with Carly and Emily for her very own episode of What's The Stack. Tune in to see all of these questions answered as well as some insights into Jacquie's own career. She's had a pretty cool one going from university dropout to working as a developer in some of Brisbane's most well-known companies and now with one of the world's most well-known companies.

    It's time for pancakes with Jacquie! Dig in!

    Hunt & Co. / Women in Digital 🥞 Holly Hunt (Founder & CEO)

    Hunt & Co. / Women in Digital 🥞 Holly Hunt (Founder & CEO)

    It's not every day that you get to sit down with your very own CEO to eat pancakes on camera! Lucky for Carly and Emily, that day has arrived and it's part of What's The Stack.

    This week, Holly Hunt joins What's The Stack. While What's The Stack started out as conversations about all things Tech, Carly and Emily realised there's so much more to talk about in the broader tech community. Across both her work with Hunt & Co. and Women In Digital, Holly talks to business owners and industry members every day. There's so many insights that she brings to the table and we're ecstatic to capture them on camera.

    Better yet, Carly and Emily used this as an opportunity to ask all the curly questions to ensure they're preserved for future reference. Did someone say Pawternity Leave?
