Betty Tran has always loved coding. She knew it was something she wanted to pursue in a career from a young age- she built her first website about her favorite video games. Betty completed both her Bachelors degree in Computer Science then Masters Degree specialising in Intelligent Web Technologies at Queen Mary University of London in 2009. She started with Drupal after she landed her first job in a small consultancy building websites. Betty went on to build cross platform (iOS, Android) mobile applications using Titanium and most recently has been working on enterprise projects supporting and advising customers with their app development at Appcelerator. Betty is passionate about design patterns and always looks for ways to write clean, scalable and maintainable code.
Betty grew up in Shoreditch, the neighborhood in London with the highest concentration of artists in Europe. She eventually moved further east to enjoy long walks in the local country park with her husband, Raj and dog, Bear. Betty’s hobbies include participating in hackathons, baking geeky themed cupcakes and traveling (to experience culture through food).
