Hello, I’m Helen
A Veteran, a Mum, a Nana, A Knitter, a Website Developer, a Website Operations Manager & a Web Technologies Facilitator.
Endeavoring to educate the world about the Internet one person at a time.
I have had several careers, lots of differing interests and experiences, and the knowledge gained from these I would like to share.
When I was in the RAAF, I was teaching my subordinates, peers and superiors (in rank) how to do things using technology provided to us. Whether that was how to load a telex machine or how to get the most out of the ‘dreaded’ ration pack. I resigned from the RAAF in 2000, and I found that I enjoyed the problem solving and teaching aspects of my job in the RAAF.
I then taught for 14 years at a Vocational Education College. My specialist subject was and is Web Technologies. Specifically Web Design and Development. I left the college in 2015. I am teaching my web technologies craft through Codemaster Institute Bootcamps
My mission since then has been one of self-discovery and realising that I am good at teaching and mentoring people about web technologies.
I started my business – Graphitedge – just to do that in July 2015
