I'm Shannon Turner, a software developer in Washington DC, and this is my portfolio.

All of my projects are open source and focus on issues of social justice and civic tech.

I believe teaching and leadership development are the best ways to achieve gender parity in tech.

I also develop the curriculum for my coding classes and practice graphic design.
