Hello World

I'm Jordan Brady, a creative front end developer, mentor, and community leader working with groups like Women Who Code Portland and PDXNode. I founded a group called Puppies and Portfolios to help new developers build an awesome online presence. I have a great passion for everything CSS and rubber duck debugging. I enjoy speaking at meetups and conferences to share the things I know.

When not coding, I can be found ...

Community Involvement

During summer of 2015 I attended my first tech event: a networking night put on by Women Who Code Portland that introduced me to the wonderful world of meetups. Since then, I have attended numerous different meetups where I learnt a lot, met some amazing humans, and grew out of my comfort zone. I've even started speaking at and organizing my own events.
