A brief introduction

Hi, I’m Melanie, a product manager with a design and web-dev background. Currently, I’m helping enable web teams on the Jamstack at Netlify.

My core personal mission is to empower people to make interesting, useful, and inclusive things on the web…and I still love making my own side projects!

Recent product work

  • Scopes and deploy contexts for environment variables

    Developers can limit environment variables to specific scopes, such as builds only or functions only. They can also change the variable value based on the deploy context, including branch-specific values.

  • Azure DevOps integration

    Developers can now quickly connect a site on Netlify to an Azure DevOps repo. Their entire team can take advantage of the Netlify workflow, including: automated builds and deploys; deploy notifications; and collaboration on Deploy Previews.
