Introducing….Sarah Johnson: Web Developer, Writer and Algorithm Wrangler

Who are you and what do you do?

Sarah Johnson, I have a web design business called and I’m a writer as well.

What will you be teaching at Geek Girl Tech Conference this year?

SEO, Google Analytics, Writing for the Web, and WordPress Advanced


What was your favorite part of the conference last year?

The people. The classes were full and people were really fired up to learn.

PC or Mac?

Definitely a Mac, though I have a lot of PC experience from corporate life.


When did you first know you were geeky?

When I was 10 or 11 and begged for math puzzle books that were like crossword puzzles but with math and logic algorithms…early aptitude signals for programming-geek.

Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars.

Choose 5 people from any moment of time to have dinner and drinks with. Who would they be and why?

Emile Zola, because he’s my favorite writer these days and he was incredibly prolific and able to write his way into all kinds of characters and situations. Matt Damon, because he’s a local guy who made good-and I way over-identified with Good Will Hunting. President Obama because he’s incredibly interesting and human without having an attitude about himself, and he’s seems like he’d be a lot of fun. Bon Iver because I’m interested in his creative process, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who Truman called “The First Lady of the World” for her human rights efforts.

Who do feel has had the most impact on technology in your time?

Steve Jobs without a doubt, simplifying, innovating, inventing….isn’t everyone going to own an iPad in the next year?


Facebook or Twitter?



Tell us something about you nobody knows….

Seriously, if nobody knows, there’s no way I’m going to tell 500 geek girls about it.

Sending a Geek Girl to College? How cool would that be…

Here is a fantastic opportunity in the initial seed phase from the Defrag Conference and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) to send a Geek Girl in high school to college!

In the words of Eric Norlin from the Defrag blog:

As a corollary to that (call this a pre-announcement), we’re working on a program whereby we would award money for college to a deserving young woman in high school that has an interest in computer science. I’m still hammering out the details, but we’re talking to our sponsors, the NWCIT, etc — where the idea would be that Defrag and Defrag’s sponsors throw some money in a pot, and we find the right mechanism for award selection. Like I said, I’m still working on details, but wouldn’t it be cool if we could build this up to the point where there was a Defrag award that could PAY for the college tuition of a woman choosing to enter the field of computer science?

We at Geek Girl Camp applaud Eric Norlin and would love to support him in anyway possible to get this happening this year, and every year. If you read our mission, we are all about opportunities like this for women who want to get into computer tech and have supported many organizations in the last few years with over $12,000 in scholarships. We eat, drink and live this stuff.

And to think, you could also go to the Defrag Conference and learn about Computer Science from November 9-10th in Denver! Learn all about: Big Data, Analytics, Enterprise, Social Media, Mobile Apps, Cloud Computing and more!

If this is not the place to be for a future geek, then we don’t know. A target-rich environment, I opine.

Are you interested in this scholarship when it comes to fruition? Interested in going to Defrag? Let us know, or stay tuned to the Defrag Blog and website as they update more information on both.

It can be done…and how awesome is sending a geek girl to college to learn about computers? Way….
