Your instructor

Katie’s 14+ year career as a software engineer has been pretty darn fun. She helped develop Google Docs and later was on-call for some of Google’s biggest cloud infrastructure as a Site Reliability Engineer. She solved some serious technical and operational challenges at Campaign Monitor as lead of the engineering productivity team, and she helped get education startup Grok Learning off the ground as their first employee. Today you’ll find her freelancing for startups, as well as working on her own projects.

Fluent in several programming languages, she’s at home in both the web browser and deep in the cloud. She’s been teaching programming to beginners for a long time, with many of her past students now working at Google, Atlassian, and a range of exciting tech startups.
