The Hosts

James Q Quick

James Q Quick

Technical Content Creator

I am a developer, speaker, and teacher with a passion for teaching developers.

I'm a firm believer in work-life balance, the on-going pursuit of personal happiness, and empowering others to take control of their career. My personal philosophy of “Learn Build Teach” has blossomed into a growing community of aspiring and established developers focused on helping each succeed.

Amy Dutton

Amy Dutton

Lead Maintainer on RedwoodJS Core Team

I love️ teaching designers how to code and developers how to design.

I'm a product designer and full-stack developer. I have over 20 years of web experience, officially making me a granny in Internet years. I live in Nashville, TN, with my husband, 3 adorable kids, and 2 dogs. If I'm not sitting in front of my computer making things, I'm hanging out with family and friends. I love streaming all the things, playing cards, reading, and drinking coffee. Lots of coffee.

Bekah HW

DevEx Lead at Open Sauced

I graduated from the Flatiron School Software Engineering program in May of 2019.

Since then I’ve been a front-end development and Team & Community Building consultant, created the developer community Virtual Coffee, and spent a lot of time educating, listening, and growing with the tech community. I’m currently the Developer Experience Lead at OpenSauced. I dabble in other things like podcasting, speaking at conferences, momming four kids, and occasionally live-streaming.

Brad Garropy

Brad Garropy

Lead Frontend at Atlassian

I like shipping fast and getting deep into the technical details.

I live in Austin, Texas and some folks call me the cowboy coder. While I’m super passionate about building things with code, I like to spend time away from the computer lifting weights, two stepping with my wife, or riding my Onewheel.
