Nevertheless, Stephanie Nemeth Coded

・1 min read

I started coding...

because I needed a career change 3 years ago. I started out as a dev intern at a Ruby on Rails shop and development into a full fledged dev. I still feel like I am just treading water most of the time, but I think I've found my niche in frontend development.

I'm excited about...

LEDs! No seriously, I'm excited how I've turned my weird LEDs/hardware/wearables hobby into opportunity to speak at conferences. I'm speaking at a bunch of frontend/javascript conferences this year, which is exciting, but also terrifying for me. I only spoke at my first conference last year.

My advice for allies to support women and non-binary folks who code is....

Listen to them and amplify their voices.

Awesome! Would love to see a post about LEDs; I was considering making a simple LED light that's connected to a wireless switch. Not sure if I should use bluetooth or not, but I did a bit of research and it seemed harder than I thought.

Also, high five for Ruby on Rails intern to becoming a full dev! Pretty much the same for me as well.

Do we really need classes in JavaScript after all?

Did classes deliver, what they promised? In this post, I share my thoughts about common classes pitfalls and possible solutions for creating better web development.
