I'm a lead software engineer working on business applications at PeopleDoc. I'll happily teach HTML/CSS/JS to the students. I once used to be a teacher, for 2 years at SupDeWeb, Paris, and I've been an engineering/project manager for the past 4 years.
I've coded as an amateur and a student for more than 20 yrs. Went pro last year via WDI at GA. I want to be a part of a more inclusive, balanced work environment, and tweeting stuff probably isn't going to get me there. This has a better chance imo.
I am a graduate of Founders & Coders, a 16-week coding bootcamp. I have recently helped to run a week teaching Elm to the current cohort. I really enjoyed being a mentor and passing on what I have learnt. A bit cliche but it was super rewarding!
This is my first time teaching in a public setting. I have close to 8 years of working with Web technologies, both front-end and backend (HTML, JS, CSS, Python, beginner Elixir). I'm really passionate about learning and teaching is a great way to learn.
I volunteer at RailsBridge and RailsGirls events and think it's important to mentor under-represented groups in tech. I also enjoy teaching and learn new skills from the experience. I'm South African, having recently moved to London.
