Anjana Vakil

Software Engineer & Educator

Anjana suffers from a chronic case of curiosity, which led her from philosophy to English teaching to computational linguistics to software development. As a freelance engineer & educator, these days she mostly codes & teaches from her home base in San Francisco, when not traveling (in a mask) to events around the world to speak about the joy of programming and advocate for a more equitable & ethical tech industry. Nerd out with her about functional programming & JavaScript, ask her about the Recurse Center & Outreachy, and definitely invite her to your karaoke party!

What They're Saying

I just completed "Vanilla JavaScript Projects" by Anjana Vakil on Frontend Masters! It was fun making the camera project in which I used Vite and used some vscode extensions like eslint which can help find some bugs. And the dark mode toggle was nice.
