Purvi wants to live in a world where education is free, accessible and practical. She is the director of software development for Bridge; a Canadian non-profit teaching free, advanced programming and design to women, agender, and non-binary professionals in Toronto. Purvi created and taught the front-end curriculum at Bridge, and now oversees all the students and volunteers involved in the software development cohorts.

Purvi is also a solutions architect at Rangle, working as a full stack developer. She has been making web and mobile apps at scale for several years. When she’s not coding, you can find her playing Dominion and other board games, knitting in the summer to prepare for winter, and binge watching television without a trace of shame.
