Lori Olson is the owner and chief instructor of the WNDX School of RubyMotion development. She has turned the formidable development & mentoring skills nurtured over a 30 year software career toward training people in mobile application development with Ruby. A popular speaker at conferences around the world, her workshops have been featured at RailsConf, NSScotland, and RubyConfAU.
When she's not working on the school, Lori keeps her hands in with mobile & Rails app development, and in her copious amounts of spare time (HA!) volunteers teaching total novices how to code through such non-profits as RailsBridge, Canada Learning Code and Destination Exploration. A proud former Calgarian, Lori now lives with her husband and two dogs in Lethbridge AB Canada.
