Welcome to my ~~*professional*~~ page. Below, you'll find my headshot, event bio, outline of my CV, and an exhaustive (and exhausting) list of my speaking engagements.
Any professional requests that are not Glitch-specific should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. I beg of you to ask me for photos/bios instead of Googling and using old ones!

Jenn Schiffer is the Director of Community Engineering at Glitch, where she's responsible for supporting, growing and advocating for the friendliest community of coders. She hasn't won any awards (not mad).
Jenn earned both a Bachelors and Masters in Computer Science from Montclair State University, then joining the department to work on undergraduate and graduate level curriculum, accreditation, and advising of hundreds of students. She's taught tech literacy to non-technical majors, web development fundamentals to graduate Computer Science students, and haters how to love.
A proponent of open web technology and ethical data science, she left academia to work in the web development industry, first as senior engineer at the National Basketball Association, open web engineer at Bocoup, and then as Glitch's first Community Engineer. She's built software that runs the gamut from sports stats delivery and healthcare price crowdsourcing, to pixel art creation tools and databases helping doctors find the best cancer treatment for their patients.
