I’m Tonya or you may know me as hellofromTonya. I’m a software educator, electrical and software engineer, dreamer, and silly gal. I’ve been in engineering since the mid-1980s. I used to build multimillion dollar high-tech systems to the largest manufacturers in the world. Then well stuff happened with my health. I’m on a mission to help developers level up and share what others built in me throughout the decades.
More About Me
You can read more about my story in my essay on HeroPress: Finding Your Purpose in Life.
I teach professional WordPress web development and leveling up at KnowTheCode.io. Things that I teach are theming, plugins, languages and technologies, fundamentals, clean coding principles, problems solving, and how to think about code.
I started writing my new book, Be a More Awesome Developer: Roadmap to Continuously Level Up in WordPress on LeanPub. The book is just for the professional (or aspiring) WordPress Developer. It is your roadmap to continually level up throughout your entire professional career. It gives you “level up habits” and self-assessment tools you can use right now. The intent is to make you more marketable and in demand.
Cheers and <happy coding>,
