About

Jen Myers, millionaire playgirl

Author

I'm a web designer/developer, teacher and speaker. I'm part of the instructor team at Dev Bootcamp in Chicago. In 2011, I founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It, a group that provides introductory coding classes aimed at women, and I currently serve GDI as an advisor and sometimes teacher. I speak regularly 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 movies, writing on paper and hair dye.

Mentoring

I regularly offer virtual office hour appointments for mentoring, primarily for beginner tech speakers. See upcoming appointments at my Ohours profile.

Training

I'm sometimes available to lead internal company training. Topics I typically cover are beginner HTML/CSS and responsive web design for UX or visual designers, dynamic web prototyping and designer/developer collaboration. Feel free to contact me via email if you'd like to discuss an opportunity.

Inquiries

If you would like to talk to me about a speaking engagement, writing opportunity or an article or interview, contact me via email.

If you need a bio and/or hi-resolution photos, you can download my press kit.

I am not currently accepting freelance projects.

Site

Made with Jekyll, GitHub Pages, Compass, Susy, FitVids.js and a lightning bolt. Typefaces are Proxima Nova and RePublic Web, both served by Typekit, plus the Entypo icon font.

Deliberatepixel

For many years, my primary web presence was Deliberatepixel.com, so there is a good chance you know me from that and might be wondering what happened to it. Nothing has - I just outgrew it. It remains live, with full archive, but I have transferred some of my longer pieces to this site's own archive for easier access. If you feel like reading the greatest hits on paper, you can still get a copy of the Deliberatepixel book.
