We chat with Anna Lytical about flipping the (Java)Script and putting the camp into coding tutorials. Anna is a developer advocate at Google and a coding educator who teaches about computer programming as the drag queen Anna Lytical.

I asked Anna to describe herself in her own words. “Anna Lytical is a drag queen and engineer who creates sickeningly entertaining and educational coding tutorials in order to engage more LGBTQ+ people with coding and the tech industry. Anna shows how to use technology to represent yourself through various projects like websites, Instagram filters, glamorous command prompts and so much more.”

Sara has been a big fan for a while, both on Twitter and YouTube. Below are some highlights:

Speaking of great coding projects, Sara is helping to support DevAroundTheSun. It’s a 24-hour coding jam that offers mentorship and tutorials, with all proceeds going to help people impacted by COVID-19.  Check out the link above to learn how you can participate.
