Christine Bryant-Ryback

I'm a senior software engineer, and I make web apps at WillowTree in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Tech Speaker

I'm excited to be speaking at the first ever RVA JavaScript Conf about Style Organization Tips for Bewildered JS Devs.

I spoke at AlterConf NYC 2017 and Open Source & Feelings 2016 about Body Image Negotiations in Tech Spaces.

I spoke at Open Source Bridge 2017 about what techniques behind succcessful writing workshops can bring to code review and open source contributions.

Development & Pile o' Styles

I primarily develop in JavaScript (sometimes TypeScript). When not doing that, I specialize in teaching others extensible Sass/Less/CSS, semantic markup, and baseline web accessibility. I prefer traditional frontend development but have worked extensively with Express.js middleware and custom WordPress backends.

And More...

In my spare time, I read/watch science-fiction and horror, claim that I will return to homebrewing beer "when I have time; but soon, definitely" (see also: knitting), and play 2-5 older indie Steam games over and over while reminiscing about the heady days of 1996-2000 Macintosh shareware gaming.

I graduated from Hollins University with a B.A. in English (creative writing) and a minor in Psychology (primarily clinical and biological), with extensive credits in the fields of Anthropology and Gender Studies, and zero credits in Computer Science.
