About Me

Libby FisherMy name is Libby Fisher and I am an experienced freelance web developer and contract programmer recently relocated to Boston from Seattle. Welcome to my coding blog! Here you will find helpful tips, tricks, tutorials and code snippets for your website coding needs. You can hire me to help with your coding projects if you have one that you can’t or don’t want to tackle yourself. If you are looking for website design or development assistance, please visit my online portfolio at www.libbyfisher.com.

Because this blog is a side project and not my main “gig,” I am able to put the proceeds from work that I accept through this blog towards two causes that are close to my heart: sponsoring an 11-year-old boy named Harrison in Kenya and supporting the work of and my involvement with Code For Haiti, an organization which I co-founded in 2015.

Founded in 2015, Code for Haiti is a ​growing ​network of Haitian web developers, programmers, and other technologists​ passionate about applying their knowledge, skills, and resources towards the improvement of local communities in Haiti.

Code for Haiti aims to find, create and utilize opportunities to leverage technology for the​​ advantage of society in Haiti​. This is accomplished by​ organizing and​ hosting conferences,​​ seminars, and hackathon events; partnering and collaborating with local individuals, businesses, and organizations to build and develop innovative technical solutions to local problems; and other ventures aimed to leverage technology for the ​benefit of the people and communities of Haiti.

harrison_headshotI began sponsoring Harrison in 2011. He is 12 years old and lives in Kenya with his parents and 4 older sisters. His favorite school subject is math (a boy after my own heart!) and he loves playing “football” (soccer) and also enjoys helping his mother around the house. He has had a pet rabbit named “Potter” the whole time I have known him and who I am told now has two babies. While it is obviously a blessing for me to be able to help sponsor his education and the needs that accompany that (uniforms, books, etc.), the part that is most rewarding to me is the relationship that I have been able to strike up with him. I hope and plan to go to Kenya and visit him before he graduates out of the program.
