Jessica Lord, open web developer—designer

Jessica Lord

  • of the Warner Robins, Georgia Lords


I'm an urban designer turned open web developer—which isn't as odd as it sounds. I use technology to build tools to make the web more approachable.

I champion open knowledge, documentation, and kindness. Open source is a privilege.
