Hi everyone! My name is Cassidy Williams. I'm a startup advisor and investor, developer experience expert, and meme-maker on the internet.
I’ve worked at Netlify, React Training, CodePen, Amazon, L4 Digital, Clarifai, and Venmo, and currently advise some companies, including Netlify, Polywork, and Contenda. I do some angel investing, as well! I’ve definitely hopped around a bunch of different roles and types of companies, but I’ve learned a lot doing so and can talk for days about small companies vs large ones, stock options vs units, side projects, management vs IC work, and other related things.
I run a weekly newsletter (cassidoo.co/newsletter) and love teaching and helping people become better coders! I've spoken at over a hundred events around the world, and have made online classes on Scrimba, Udemy, Skillshare, and more.
I was featured in Glamour magazine as one of the 35 Women Under 35 Who Are Changing the Tech Industry, and I starred in the documentary Big Dream, which focuses on women who are breaking barriers and overcoming personal challenges to follow their passion in science, math, computing, and engineering. I also design mechanical keyboards and have… way too many of them, but I love them.
Ask me anything about startups, teaching web dev, angel investing, mechanical keyboards, React, Jamstack, or anything else!
