I’m Shonna Smith, the founder and owner of coderighter. I have spent over 20 years working as a software engineer and tech team lead on full lifecycle enterprise software development projects for big business and big government. I now enjoy turning this skillset towards the small business community – especially the minority-owned small business community.
I enjoy helping other small business owners like me realize a tech product dream that is stalled or may seem unachievable due to lack of tech know-how or lack of major funding.
As an Agile advocate, I most enjoy helping tech (and non-tech) teams transform into high-performing outfits – becoming more productive by employing Agile methods that improve team productivity, communication, and trust; and, most importantly, improving a business’s ability to constantly create something valuable.
As a Tech Education advocate, I spend a lot of time creating custom courses to teach technical subjects to learners of all ages – from school-age children all the way up to adult learners, from computer science entry-level topics all the way up to more advanced topics for adult professionals.
I enjoy teaching tech just as much as I enjoy making tech. Hear more about my journey as a computer science professional in this interview done by LinkedIn as a part of their Career Clinic video series.
