Jen Myers, millionaire playgirl

I’m a technologist and writer located in Chicago, and the Director of Open Source Curriculum at online training course provider Pluralsight.

In 2011, I founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It, an organization that provides introductory coding classes aimed at women and spent four years as a teacher, leader and advisor. I currently work as GDI's leadership community manager.

In 2014, I founded Code and Cupcakes in Chicago, a series of mother/daughter beginner coding events and now lead workshops on a regular basis.

I speak widely about topics related to design, development and diversity in the technology field, and focus on finding new ways to make both technology and technology education accessible to everyone.

I have a kid I like a lot. I also like good films, writing on paper and hair dye.
