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.
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:

It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.
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).
