Kelly de Vries

Software Engineer

Kelly takes her deep knowledge as a software engineer and deftly merges that with her in-the-trenches experience as a classroom educator and reading specialist. This is why she’s so brilliant at creating technology that helps make learning accessible and engaging for educators and the students they serve.


Kelly learned to code using ReactJS, Ruby on Rails, Node.js, and a handful of other Javascript-related tools and processes for building web applications. After completing Epicodus' 15-week deep dive into all things “code,” Kelly joined Lumen Learning to create instructional resources with personalized learning interactions. She has also served as a course developer for TreeHouse and contributed to the HackOregon and Code for PDX open source projects.

And when Kelly isn’t working diligently to amaze and delight our clients with her ed-tech solutions, she runs a  local meetup for junior software developers  and keeps her hands busy with knitting.
