Danielle Thompson is a newly minted software engineer working in the education technology sphere of the nonprofit world, after making a major career change from working in hospitality and events for many years. As a code school graduate herself, she loves to help demystify tech for others with non-traditional backgrounds, and works to open doors into tech with her friends at Code School Q&A, weekly on Wednesday nights at around 7pm (PST) at twitch.tv/thejonanshow.
Outside of work she can typically be found with a nose buried in a book, hanging out with her doggo, and making delicious craft beverages.
