The Podcast for Developers with Short Attention Spans
Join professional developers Kiana and Julie as they dabble in new technologies, confess their development sins, and laugh at the awkward realities of life as a female developer.
Kiana has a degree in Computer Science from Georgia Institute of Technology and also considers herself a full stack developer. She has been working primarily in web development for approximately 10 years. She currently works primarily in React.js, though she has worked in many other languages in the past. She has also spoken about Android development as multiple conferences.
Kiana is an avid skydiver. When she’s not at her computer, chances are she’s either jumping out of a plane or hiking with her dog, Puppins. Julie is writing this bio, and she cannot remember Kiana’s cat’s name, but she also has a cat. Said cat has been known to wear a tiny red necktie.
Julie took the long road to software development. After majoring in Spanish and International Business at Georgia State University, she fell into the first career that would have her, which turned out to be retail banking management.
Julie loves to learn, and, on a lark, decided to teach herself a bit of code. She was immediately hooked. Within a year, she had taught herself the basics of Ruby on Rails, graduated from a coding bootcamp, and secured her first job in software development.
She is now a full stack developer, and currently works in React.js.
Julie has been married “figuratively” forever to her high school sweetheart, Donnie. She has 2 munchkins, named Cece and Daniel. She is raising them geeky, and they enjoy explosive science experiments as a family. Julie is also obsessed with books, and has a special fascination with behavioral economics.
