Christina Truong, Educator and Developer


Here are a few things I'm working on presently and some from the past. While I'm still doing front end development work, I'm also exploring more creative independent projects.

This project includes videos, tutorials and a newsletter focusing on HTML, CSS and working in tech. Each video posted on my YouTube channel focuses on one HTML or CSS concept. I go over how it works, when to use it and show some real world examples. The companion articles are also posted on Medium as an alternative to video content.

They Reminisce Over You Podcast

This is a podcast I co-host with my husband, where we talk about our favorite singers, rappers, actors and pop culture moments. We give flowers to our favs while they're still here to get them. We also produce and edit all the episodes. And of course, I developed and maintain the website!

Nuthin' But a Tee thang

Inspired by hip hop, R&B, and pop culture. Tees, hoodies and more, for the culture! Created on the Shopify platform, I was able to learn some Liquid templating language to make customizations to the theme. Also, this is where I get to flex some creativity creating designs for the store.

website Instagram Twitter

After teaching a JavaScript workshop, I felt inspired to create something just for fun! I realized that of the many content/ipsum generators, there was nothing for The Wire fans. I searched for domain and it was available, so I began building. To use the quote generator, pick your favorite character from the dropdown and the number of paragraphs to generate. See what happens if you forget to choose an option!



Women&&Tech was launched in 2012 and features interviews with different women working in the tech industry. I became familiar with them as one of the interviewees! A few years later, I joined the team and helped with the relaunch of the site. I also created a customized framework, styleguide and detailed documentation so that our non-dev team members could update the website as well.

Ladies Learning Code Redesign

The previous website was part of an digital literacy hub, The Learning Labs, which also formerly featured various programs such as MakerKids, HackerYou and Hive Toronto. The full website was eventually donated to Ladies Learning Code and I took over the site maintenance. A redesign and rebranding by Studio Function were required to make the website all Ladies Learning Code. The site has since been redesigned again so stay tuned for a case study, to see more details about this project.
