My name is Rachel. I am a front-end web developer – JavaScript, jQuery, AngularJS and CSS3 are my weapons of choice. I currently work as an analyst programmer for public service. I love every single minute of it.

I spent my teenage years retreating to my room every afternoon after school, teaching myself how to code. I never dreamt that this little hobby of mine would one day become my bread and butter. My career has spanned from working for web agencies, for small to medium-sized businesses as a freelancer to coding for the government.

I also write, primarily about web development, technology, the Internet and making websites and software accessible. I also help coordinate after school programs that teach kids how to code and introduces them to technology.
