Binder is a project that allows users to create custom computing environments that can be shared and used by many remote users. It is powered by BinderHub, which is an open-source tool that deploys the Binder service in the cloud.

One such Binder service is mybinder.org and is free to use. More information about mybinder.org and the team that runs is can be found on the “About mybinder.org” page.

As a member of the Binder operating team, Sarah’s role involves maintaining the mybinder.org website, responding to issues and/or contributions on GitHub and in the gitter channel, and providing documentation.

Sarah is also the Microsoft Azure expert when it comes to deploying BinderHubs and has written a step-by-step workshop that teaches others to do this. She has deployed and maintains a private BinderHub instance at The Alan Turing Institute, known as Hub23, hosted on Azure.
