Annie Rose Webb

Developer, teacher, enthusiastic human being


At a glance ...

I’m a high-energy developer with experience in frontend web and software development; Wordpress development; accessibility requirements and testing; and teaching HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Git to a wide range of students at different levels of experience. I like ideas, iteration, cooking, dogs, learning languages, solving problems, intersectional activism, thorough research, building for real people, and making lives easier.

If you like any of those things, I think we'll get along.

A few specifics ...

Here's some stuff I'm good at:

  • HTML
  • CSS / SASS
  • JavaScript
  • Git
  • Python
  • Jinja
  • Wordpress
  • Vue.js
  • React
  • Bootstrap
  • Accessibility
  • Teaching / Training

Here's some places I've done that stuff:

Currently

I began freelancing as a web designer and developer in 2018. My recent work includes webmastering an online retail boutique (I increased sales by more than 5%); building out an upcoming South African Wordpress-based stock photography site (building databases for customers and photographs, and writing plugins to add custom international paygates); and taking a retail client from brick-and-mortar to successful online wholesale. (Whew!)

2018

From May to October I was a software dev intern at Tembo, where I built data mapping components for their Python/Jinja backend, Vue.js frontend educational data management system. When I brought up concerns about their product suite accessibility, my internship was extended to help get them up to speed. I got their full suite WCAG accessible, and trained staff on accessibility maintenance.

2017

I was with Philly education nonprofit Coded by Kids from October 2017 to April 2018. I taught groups of underserved middle and high schoolers with no dev experience to build their first websites, using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Git. I also co-managed ops for their 17 high school programs and served on two community school boards. Several of my students kept and refined their websites when the program ended, and one made his site a senior graduation project.

2016

For the 2016 - 17 school year, I also worked with TECHNOLOchicas, an initiative designed to encourage young Latina women to pursue STEM careers. I provided tech literacy training and basic coding skills to small groups of middle schoolers. My proudest accomplishment was hearing a student say she wanted to be as good a developer as me when she grew up, but a better graphic designer. I have no doubt she will be.

And some extras...

I've been volunteering with ESL students since 2012, chaperoning middle and high school field trips and providing free tutoring. I try to stay active in the Philly tech scene, and attend regular events, talks and hackathons. I speak French and Afrikaans.

I have a BA in Cognitive Science from the University of Toronto.
