The Leaders

Renée Carignan

Renée Carignan

Renée is a UX/Technical Writer who is passionate about creating meaningful educational experiences and growing the Girl Develop It community. She became interested in web development at a young age while using HTML and CSS customize her friends’ myspace pages. After getting a BA in English, she completed a series of GDI SF classes in 2014, which empowered her to create her first web apps and successfully transition into a career in tech. She continued working with GDI SF as a TA for the HTML, CSS, Javascript and Wordpress courses, and is thrilled to bring the GDI mission, curriculum, and community to the east bay.

Vanessa Archambault

Vanessa Archambault

Vanessa is a self-taught software engineer who got her start working on GIS and mapping technologies. She originally studied Environmental Science and worked with plants and trees for a long time. After a while she got a crazy idea in her head that she could become an engineer and she went for it. Four years later she has gone from knowing zero programming to being a professional engineer. She is so excited to be teaching GDI and is always available to chat about tech, pinball, or rock climbing.
