Mostly being ill, also some book-related fun!
Spoiler: I actually only reached 98% and that's okay with me
I read an interesting book and want to talk about it
Teaching, reading, a whole lot of eating, and... a new job!
In which I decide to take a screeshot of the Ubuntu terminal application, which involves getting to grips with VirtualBox and running Ubuntu as a guest operating system on my Mac
I have always been passionate about education - before tech I worked in school/college libraries, and taught English. Now I love having the opportunity to show people how awesome coding is, especially people who belong to underrepresented groups in the tech industry.
Besides teaching, I'm a full-stack software engineer, working on a range of client and personal projects. I'm specifically interested in AWS, React and the JAMStack.
I have run several Lightning Talks events, and often look for opportunities to give lightning talks myself. Talks I've given include What's in the .git directory? and Introduction to the JAMStack. I have also organised events such as a Teaching Tech Knowledge Exchange for National Coding Week.
I mentor at Rails Girls and once gave a lightning talk on The Weird World of Programming Languages. (I also used to have pretty cool hair)
