I’m Caitie McCaffrey
Distributed Systems Diva & Backend Brat.

I’m a Backend Brat and Distributed Systems Diva at Microsoft Research.  Prior to that I was the Tech Lead for the Observability team at Twitter, and I also built large scale services and systems that power the entertainment industry at 343 Industries, Microsoft Game Studios, and HBO.  While at 343 Industries I partnered with the eXtreme Computing Group in Microsoft Research to productionize Orleans as part of my work rewriting the Halo Services. I have credits on several video games including Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, Halo 4, and Halo 5.  I also have a B.S. in Computer Science from Cornell University.

In addition I’m a Novice Yogini, Crossfit Rookie, and Photographer in my non-coding hours.
