Katie Miles

Developer, Designer and Teaching Assistant

Meet Katie - Our Developer, Designer and Teaching Assistant

Katie is our hybrid here at Developers Institute. She wears two hats that are usually hard to combine: developer and creative genius. She helps students when they get stuck, creates collateral for Developers Institute marketing channels, and keeps an eye on our website content and its code.

Katie leverages her design background to create interfaces for websites, software and apps. After proving her mettle with HTML and CSS, she has added Javascript to her portfolio and further key components to round out her skillset as a full-stack developer.

Before joining Developers Institute

Katie worked in several roles wearing dual designer and developer hats before embarking on the NZ Diploma in Full-Stack Web Development. Her Bachelor of Media Arts with a speciality in Digital Media Design helps Katie transform ideas into elegant, user-friendly software design. Katie has leant her expertise to a range of projects from business web portals to booking-driven websites and shiny customer facing apps. Take a look at her hand-coded portfolio website to suss out a selection of her design work:

  • UX/UI

  • Online advertising campaigns

  • Posters

  • Illustrations

There's more to Katie than just design and code!

Katie calls Northland home now and makes the most of the beautiful surroundings Whangarei has to offer. She appreciates a good beach outing or bush walk, is a casual roller skater and piano learner, and is always up for a round of Drawful. 

Chat to her about responsive design, UI design systems or her other home, as she originally hails from 'the TRON' (Hamilton).
