Megan Heinzl:
Front-end Web Developer

Working in an agency environment, I'm no stranger to tight deadlines, juggling multiple tasks and last minute changes, but I'm the happiest when I can really sink my teeth into a problem or figure out something new!

As a developer, I strive to create user-friendly, responsive websites with clean and consistent code. I pay special attention to existing structure and formatting whenever I work collaboratively with others and do my best to match it. I believe that close working relationships, strong communication and a desire to learn and improve are key aspects of being a developer.

When I'm not at the computer, it's likely that I'm either snuggling on the couch with my cats and dogs, or out in the garden getting my hands dirty. I love being outside, whether I'm weeding, mowing the lawn, or out on a hike. I was born and raised in the Lower Mainland in British Columbia and I love it for its rain, moss, and mountains.

Currently, I work as a developer at a digital marketing agency that focuses mostly on WordPress websites and email marketing. I work with designers and other developers to put together sites and features from mockups, using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. All websites are done using our in-house starter theme as a base and then customizing as needed. I've assisted in upgrading our starter theme to function with the Gutenberg editor, and am currently working to put together a headless version using Gatsby.js. In addition, I've worked closely with one of our clients for over 2 years, assisting them with website updates and emails and leading the internal team. The quality and timeliness of work has resulted in multiple additional contracts and a strong relationship.

I went to school at BCIT where I obtained my Technical Web Design certification after an intensive, 6 month long, full-time program. The program set me up with a strong foundation on current technologies and best-practice techniques in an immersive, practical way. We worked hands-on with languages including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL, as well as frameworks, libraries and preprocessors such as React, jQuery and Sass. In addition to the technical skills, there was a lot of focus on making "showcase-able" projects and working in teams.
