Meet Alex Castelli
Alex Castelli has been a software developer in the making since she was a Junior in high school and took a computer class to avoid another year of French. Her path to a career in coding continued at College of Charleston, where she earned a degree in Computer Science. While she is a skilled QA, Alex also has the proficiency to comfortably work in both frontend and backend environments as a Junior Developer.
Alex is the Program Coordinator for CODEcamp, the community-sourced training program offered by the Charleston Digital Corridor to provide instruction in open source Web technologies. She is also actively involved in the group, Charleston Women in Tech.
When she’s not ruling the Charleston tech scene, Alex achieves balance by spending time with family and friends, and keeps busy supporting such organizations as Darkness to Light, and the Meals on Wheels Association of America. You can also find her practicing her horsemanship skill by jumping around a course with her horse, Qui.
This Spring, Alex Castelli will join us on May 6 to give an Introduction to Twirl – The Play Scala Template Compiler during her session for Syntax Code & Craft Convention.
SyntaxCon brings together over thirty-five talented developers from around the country who will share road-tested insights.
This year’s schedule provides content across 4 main tracks, each with a specific focus:
- Front-End Development
- Back-End Development
- Mobile Development
- Platforms (cloud-hosted services, gaming, content management systems, etc.)
Attendees can customize their personal agenda by choosing sessions with an aim to improve their craft, fulfill goals, and learn cutting edge trends and best practices in a relatively short time.
