Ali started by telling us how she got into software development, almost by accident, how she became an assistant professor and how she slowly but surely embraced this career. We talked about her time working for a startup and why her time there was invaluable. We talked at length about her move from develoment to teaching and what she learned along the way. We finally segwayed into her current role at the crossroads of development, teaching and community as a developer advocate.
Ali is a software engineer at DEV. Before that, she was a lead instructor at General Assembly. She loves Python, JavaScript, and talking about code. She is most interested in the intersection of programming, art, and education. When Ali's not working, you can find her watching New England sports, competing on CodeWars, taking runs around Capitol Hill, rock climbing, or participating in DC coding community events. Ali also blogs at dev.to/aspittel where she talks about code and her life surrounding it. Her writing has gotten roughly six hundred thousands readers in the past year.
