Christine Abernathy (Developer Advocate)
Christine has a passion for developers and mobile technologies and has yet to come across a mobile OS she didn’t like. This has naturally led to her role as a Developer Advocate working with Parse. At Facebook, she’s worked primarily on the iOS and Android SDKs and in supporting strategic Open Graph partnerships. Prior to Facebook, Christine headed up engineering at Mshift, a mobile banking software provider, delivering iOS apps and mobile browser-based products.
