I’m delighted to be putting my foot forward as the newest member of Little Weaver. I’ve been working with the team on some very exciting projects for a couple months now — focusing primarily on front-end development and client relations. I bring a wide variety of experience to the team, from programming robots to decoupled web applications. Most importantly, I’m Little Weaver’s first Canadian 🇨🇦.
What do I do as a front-end developer?
While we all do a bit of everything at Little Weaver, my work is primarily in front-end land. This means I am tying together design and back-end development into something you can interact with through your web browser. If I’ve done my job correctly, this means a smooth, accessible, and robust experience as you’re clicking or tapping around an application.
Design at Little Weaver consists of creative visual assets, branding, user interaction design, and information architecture. Back-end development is where a lot of behind-the-scenes magic happens — where data (i.e., copy, user profiles, photos, relationships) gets stored and processed. Front-end development presents this data, under thoughtful design, to you: the visitor!
Outside Little Weaver
I like to read and write about intersectional feminism and queer advocacy in my spare time — including a published piece in Model View Culture on avoiding exclusionary user input fields. I tweet about it far more than I talk shop.
You can find me away from keyboard around the Hamilton/Greater Toronto Area. Online, you can look for my upcoming posts on this very blog about decoupled Django applications and technical communication.
I use emoji hearts far too much and my hair is usually purple (but not for this post, disappointingly — very off-brand). 💞❤️💖
