Hey there, Sugar Developers!


I'm SugarCRM's newest Developer Advocate, and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Lauren Schaefer. Since getting my bachelor's and master's degrees in Computer Science at North Carolina State (go pack!), I've been slowly migrating north over the years, and I currently live in Pennsylvania.


I love developing web interfaces in JavaScript. That moment when you finally get an interface pixel perfect after tinkering for hours is so rewarding.


I believe that technology should be easy to use, and I love helping people get started with technology that is new to them. I'm excited about making the process of becoming a Sugar developer even easier as well as introducing the community to the latest and greatest features and customizations as they become available.


One important part of my job is listening to what you, members of the Sugar developer community, have to say and bringing that feedback back to the engineering team. I'm looking forward to chatting with you in the Sugar Developer Community as well as in person at events like SugarCon.


Some facts about me...  I'm obsessed with the color pink. I'm a sucker for reality tv shows like Dancing with the Stars as well as PBS dramas like Victoria. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents (Antarctica is truly amazing!).


I'm really excited about meeting so many of you at SugarCon in a little over a month! Here's why:



See you in September!
