About Step Dev

Why Step Dev?

Step Dev was founded in 2016 by Steph Housden.

"After becoming involved as a STEM Ambassador and Code Club volunteer I was inspired to make my day job revolve around encouraging creativity through coding."

"As well as helping develop skills for those still at school I would like to encourage parents and carers to have a go with the tools their children are using."

About Steph Housden

I have worked as a coder for 16 years. I have a broad range of experience from working at start-ups in Brick Lane, to becoming a Web Developer at Google Maps and most recently working in educational Science software for the Open University.

I studied Design for Interactive Media with multimedia Computing at University, and fell in love with coding.

I mainly work in Web Development and specialise in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, XSLT and Java. I currently work on a freelance basis within my own company Step Dev Ltd.

I am registered as a STEM Ambassador (DBS checked) and regularly volunteer at a Code Club.
