Amy HenningAboutBlogProjects


English major 📚 turned educator 👩🏻‍🏫 turned software engineer 👩🏻‍💻, based in Chicago 🏙️

As a teenager, I taught myself HTML and CSS to design fan sites and online journal templates. I loved being able to create websites with nothing but lines of text in Notepad.

I studied English and Linguistics in college and have a Master's in Teaching. Before entering tech, I worked for a decade in education as a teacher and curriculum expert. I now write code for a living at dentsu. (This blog post is the longer version of my path to becoming an engineer.)

I love learning, problem solving, and working with others to create the best products possible to meet user needs.

Right now I work mostly in Ruby (Rails), JavaScript (React and AngularJS), and Python (Flask, Django, and microservices).
