About me

Hi, I’m Tania. I’m a self-taught web developer and designer from Chicago. I currently work at DAIS as a front end software engineer writing applications with React. I also write for DigitalOcean, SitePoint, Envato Tuts+, and other publications.

I’ve written the beginner’s guide to React which is included in the official React docs, and the definitive guide to developing a WordPress theme. I believe in reinventing the wheel, building things from scratch, and writing code with as few libraries and dependencies as possible.

I started this website as a place to document everything I learned as I began my journey transitioning from a professional chef to web developer. The internet is flooded with poor quality, out-of-date resources and tutorials, and I aim to create the most concise and practical articles possible.

I provide my website to you completely free, without ads, without sponsored posts, because I want to leave a positive impact, and I believe I can inspire others to create beautiful corners of the internet as well. If this resonates with you, please consider supporting me with a coffee. (I might use it towards beer.)

Hey, cryptonerds. I didn’t forget about you. My addresses are below if you’d like to support me with a virtual, anonymous, and stateless form of currency.

Sometimes I sing and play accordion/piano. I like to record music in my spare time. Here are some.
