Though actively discouraged from pursuing her interest in technology as a teenager, Jess couldn’t stay away from tech for long, during her degree her dissertation supervisor, horrified at her interest and flair for web development, chided “be careful, or you could end up as a developer!!” Nevertheless, her old lecturer’s fears have been realised, Jess has ended up as a developer, and she wants the world to know it’s great! One of the most exciting and challenging jobs there is.
