Curious and gets very excited when they learn something, fix a bug or understand just another concept.

I create worlds in words, code, and empathy. Words to make complex concepts simpler to understand. Code to build solutions and empathy to always put me in my user's or audience's shoes.

Passionate and curious front-end developer looking to learn as much as possible

My background is in linguistics and teaching languages, but my passion has always been tech. I was a coordinator for a regional education program for 3 years, which helped develop people and leadership skills. I've been teaching myself web development for almost a year, and I've made a lot of progress. I'm really excited to learn even more!

Fledgling Front End Web Developer

Hello, World! I'm a front end web developer with some web content producer experience. My "before" career path included roles such as elementary school librarian, front desk person for an outpatient laboratory, and administrative assistant. I self-directed my tech learning with community resources and then was accepted to the San Diego Workforce Partnership's Income Share Agreement program to earn my Front End Web Developer certification. I was able to work for a short time as a web content producer before my position was eliminated. I'm looking to find a new role to support my team and grow as a developer.

Full Stack Software Engineer

Aside from my technical abilities, my core strengths are curiosity, empathy and tenacity. These were evolved after 6 years in a sales role, but help me daily as a SWE. CURIOSITY- when faced with a new challenge my mindset is not >I don’t know>, it is “I don’t know this yet”. EMPATHY- I learned to listen, not to reply, but to understand the needs of my customer (or user, project manager, colleague etc). TENACITY- I accept that failure is part of growth. It may be painful but it is the only way to improve.

Ruby on Rails Developer

I am Ruby on Rails Developer looking to transition over from Support Engineer to Software Engineer. I have experience with Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and working remote. While I do not work full-time as a Software Engineer, I have gained my experience by attending a Bootcamp, freelancing and working on my own app, which is Sharedwise. What I lack in experience I make up in determination and focus to learn what I need to know to provide value to my customer and team.

Educator -> In love with Rails and working with other humans since 2017

Originaly an educator and group guide, now a rails dev since 2017, I've worked on many projects for educational organizations, from creating online exhibitions for COVID times, to internal information management and processes. I'm super excited by new and interesting projects that will actually be used by people and that would make their lives better. It is very important to me that we'll have good communication so the whole thing feels good for everyone involved.

I consider the user’s needs, what tools exist already, and then plan the back-end and the front based on what the user needs to manipulate, save, and retrieve. I enjoy pair-programming and reading code from senior developers.

I create back-end applications with Android or Java. Also, I create full-stack programs using Ruby on Rails to communicate with the React, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS front-end.

Graphic designer => software developer. Nerd. Artist. Mental health advocate. Any way I can use my new skills to help someone who may be struggling is my dream. That is the way. < Bonus if you know that reference.

I did graphic design professionally for 20 years before a series of events tore me down. As part of my healing I took a chance on myself, my future, my family and entered a development bootcamp. Not knowing where it would lead or even if I could do it. Months later I graduated knowing how to code, how to think as a developer and knowing a TON about myself. I don’t know where this journey will go but I know I am in it to build tools to help lift others up. My family has been so supportive I’m ready to be able to help us level up too.
