Amanda McDermott

web developer


I'm a full-stack web developer with a focus on front-end / UI.


I can talk to computers in Ruby, Rails, JavaScript/jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, SQL, and PHP.

I can talk to humans in English, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese.

In my free time, I create music with my guitar, viola, piano, computer, and voice.

I love teaching, and am an Expert-In-Residence at General Assembly's Front-End Web Development program.


Recent Projects on Github:

  • Karao-ke-tsu, where you can search for a song by voice type, tag, and range.
  • Fretrograde, a storefront implementation project.
  • Date Escape, which will call your phone when you send the app a text message.

I'm also a singer/songwriter and graphic designer.
