Christina Truong

Tech Educator + Front-end Developer

As a developer, I specialize in creating modular and scalable front-end architectures. As an educator, I focus on creating inclusive learning environments, instructor training and curriculum development.

I’m also exploring more creative pursuits designing tee shirts and accessories for Nuthin’ But a Tee Thang, an online store I’m running with my husband.

Women & Tech

Women and Tech

Women&&Tech was launched in 2012 to feature interviews with different women working in the tech industry. I became familiar with them when I was invited to be one of the interviewees! A few years later, I joined the team and helped with the relaunch of the site as the front-end architect.

After coming back from teaching a JavaScript workshop, I felt inspired to create something just for fun. I realized that of all the content/lorem ipsum generators available, there was nothing for HBO’s The Wire fans. I searched for thewireipsum.com domain and it was available! Generate some content for your projects today.
