Lilia Abaibourova· Senior Staff Engineer, HBO · Program Co-Chair, Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing

Lilia is not only a lead engineer at HBO but also a marathon runner and Program Co-chair of the Grace Hopper Conference, the world’s largest celebration of women in computing! Prior to HBO, she was a lead at Microsoft and is most proud of building PivotViewer — a data visualization tool that makes interacting with large collections of data delightful and discovering new insights easy. Her advice to wogrammers, “don’t be afraid to step up to new challenges even if you feel not quite ready for that new role. The only thing that should make you feel uncomfortable is feeling comfortable.”
