In Person

Teaching

The saying that you don’t really know something until you teach it has absolutely held true for me. I learn something in every class I teach. As an added bonus, it’s super satisfying to see learners pick up valuable and practical skills in a single day that took me a few years to figure out on my own.

I got started mentoring at Ladies Learning Code workshops, and now I primarily teach at Camp Tech, where you can also book me for private or corporate training sessions.

Upcoming classes

 

Linn is a wonderful teacher. Down-to-earth and approachable, Linn creates an intimate, upbeat atmosphere in which it truly feels like there are no dumb questions. Drawing upon her experience as a web developer, she’s able to convey the practical implications of her material in an encouraging way. Overall, her workshop was a first-rate learning experience!

Speaking

My topic of choice is explaining technical details in a non-technical way (with a few helpful things thrown in for the experts in the room). If you need a speaker for your upcoming conference or training day, let’s talk! See the list below for examples of potential topics.

That presentation was BEYOND my expectation. It was simply awesome. I did try to learn with many tutorials how to build a site from scratch, but it was sooooo much information. But her… WOW. In one hour, I did understand everything, it was simple, clear, everything was there to start. WOOT WOOT!

Office hours

If you have a web-related problem and need a little technical support, office hours are for you. Send me an email to set up a time and we’ll tackle your issue together.

Here are a few things that are totally possible to accomplish in an hour or less:

At the end of the hour, you’ll have the solution, or at least a much better understanding of what’s next. You can always book another hour if necessary. If you’re more of a DIY-er, I’ll give you a list of things to do and point you in the right direction.
