About Me

Jill BinderHi, my name is Jill.

I lead the Diversity Outreach Speaker Training working group in the WordPress.org Community Team which encourages women and other underrepresented groups to speak at WordPress events. I helped organize the first BuddyCamp and for three years co-organized WordCamp Vancouver. I was named one of the top 100 Influencers of WordPress in 2014 by Torque Magazine and one of the top 10 Women of WordPress by CloudWays.

I make website tools for personal transformation (and anything else that strikes my fancy) on the side using WordPress (http://thing.do/, http://isthemovielikethebook.com/)

In my free time I’m always playing with creative things and trying new things. Currently it’s: learning to draw, songwriting and arranging on ukulele, and learning Scrabble strategy.

Bachelors of Computer Science, Software stream, Honours, Coop from Carleton University in 1999
New Media Design and Web Development Certificate from BCIT in 2011
