About Me

Developing websites. Coding experiences. Tapping into the inner creative.

Hi, I'm Jessica Ho and I'm a Toronto-based web developer.

After graduating from Retail Management (B.Comm) at Ryerson University, I began to pursue my passion for coding by attending HackerYou's intensive bootcamp.

At HackerYou, I learned HTML5, CSS3, Sass, responsive design, JavaScript, jQuery, React.js, web accessibility and more. I also met supportive and driven colleagues while studying at HackerYou and volunteering for Ladies Learning Code.

When I'm not coding, you can find me exploring the streets, playing video games, and enjoying some late-night reading.
