  • Hello, I'm Terian Koscik. I am a software engineer at GitHub in Chicago, IL.
  • I have taught programming/general computer stuff at Girls Inc., Saturday Academy, ChickTech, ClojureBridge, RailsBridge, and Django Girls.
  • I co-organized 6 Django Girls PDX workshops between February 2016 and July 2018, and I wrote a little bit about our 3rd workshop here.
  • I've made a series of tutorials focusing on bringing fun and creativity to programming. I've presented them at conferences across the US including PyDX, RailsConf, Act-W, DjangoCon, and CodeHer. You can follow along on your own over here.
  • I made a comic book, When Anxiety Attacks, about how therapy can help with anxiety.
  • I studied computers at Grinnell College and comics at the Independent Publishing Resource Center.
  • I work remotely and travel a lot. I still don't know how to handle jet lag.
  • This is the best cat:
