Brenda Jin (Office Hours)

Backbone.js Conference Speaker

Pacific Time (US & Canada) (-08:00)
My name is Brenda, and I am a web developer specializing in Tablet Prototyping at Macys.com. I’m the lead technologist on a pilot agile team whose goal is to discover best practices and ecommerce opportunities on tablets. I give talks on Backbone.js, mobile web, and interaction design around the world. In addition, I’ve won hackathons for projects ranging from Internet of Things to native mobile applications. My interest in computing is driven by my desire to connect humans with each other and our environments. The first time I programmed was in a language called ChucK with the Princeton Laptop Orchestra. After a winding journey through opera and non-profit fundraising, I started learning JavaScript in January 2013 through Girl Develop It, tons of JS and paired programming meetups, and resourceful self study. When I’m not programming, you’ll find me tackling the Bay Area hills on my bike or composing beats. Whatever I’m doing, I like nothing more than a challenge.
