Mary has spent many years in the software industry watching a great deal of interesting things which are both good and bad. After the last episode of undesirable activities in the workplace, she decided it was time to leave the office and put her fingers back to work documenting what she's seen and experienced instead of writing down the steps to enter data into software applications.
