Maria D. Campbell

Full Stack Developer

Full Stack Developer who designs, develops, and teaches experiences that make people's lives simpler. I have built and taught all things JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. I am also passionate about all things Git and Command Line. I feel it important that students should become better acquainted with their operating systems and understand how they work under the hood, and what better way than with the Command Line. And what better way to track one's file changes than with the GIt version control system. Command Line is also essential for working with a variety of developer tools, including Git.

I take a very hands on approach, and believe in learning by doing. Now I would like to apply this philosophy and mission outside of the traditional classroom!

Currently I am building online courses targeting aspiring or current web developers working on macOS as well as online courses covering a variety of subjects such as digital media and yes, you guessed it, Command Line, Git, and more! These courses primarily target non-developers using macOS.

Teaching online permits me to cover subject matter and in the way that I feel is most appropriate that a traditional classroom would not. The aim of my courses is for students to gain broader knowledge and skills that make them more competitive. I am only one small cog in the machine trying to make a difference, but I hope that there are others out there who share the same mission.
