Brigitte Jellinek started in web development in the early 1990ies. She co-founded a company in 1995 and spent 10 years developing web sites using ever-changing technologies. She is always happy to share the joy of programming and to encourage women to pursue tech as a career.
Jellinek is active in the German language summer universities for women in computer science as well as in the open tech education scene. In the last 10 years as a professor at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences she had the opportunity to develop a bachelor and a master degree program that focus on web development.
