About the Instructor: Liz Tiller

Portrait of Liz

Our resident developer avocado, Liz, is a recovering academic turned JavaScript developer thanks to The Iron Yard. When TIY shut down and the meetups scattered, she wanted to make sure the kids classes weren’t forgotten. She helped rebrand and continue the classes as SDG Jr so children could continue to learn to code for free. Liz became the first Tampa City Organizer for Tech Ladies in order to support and lift up women in all branches of technology.
