Meet Your Instructors:  
Halah Al-Shaikhly, Web Developer and JavaScript Instructor
After graduating from the University of Jordan with a degree in Engineering, Halah Al-Shaikhly worked as game developer and iOS Developer.

In 2015, Halah moved to the United States to attend the Galvanize Web Development Immersive; she graduated from the the program in April 2016. Halah currently works as a full-stack web developer and teaches a JavaScript night class in the heart of downtown San Francisco. 

Jared Polivka, Developer Evangelist and JavaScript TA 
Jared learned to program from his best friend/co-founder (from 2010 – 2013, they spent one year on web dev consulting and two years building a ramen profitable SaaS app). 

Jared has worn many hats – he’s served as a co-founder, a product consultant, as a “growth guy,” a marketer, a Product Manager and most recently… he leads the Developer Evangelist team at Galvanize.

When Jared isn’t working, he’s probably hustling on a side project or talking excitedly about something while sipping coffee or tea. He loves startups, storytelling, product, fitness and community building.
