developer - graphic artist

Tracy Odell

Passionate software developer skilled in JavaScript, HTML, CSS and Swift. Over 20 years experience as a graphic artist, expert in Photoshop. Graduated magna cum laude, Class of 2015, University of Washington. I received my Front End Developer Certificate from FreeCodeCamp in October 2017, and am on track to finish the Full Stack Developer Certificate by early 2018.

In the last 2+ years I have developed a series of educational iOS apps to help kids with dyslexia practice spelling skills and rules -- for which I did all the coding and graphics. All 3 apps are in the store: "Dunk the Duck," "Catch the Finch," and "Dodge the Deluge".

In my free time you’ll find me rock climbing, hanging with my family, preferably near water and geeking out over hiking gear.

In 2016, I co-founded Golden Platypus Apps, LLC along with dyslexia expert Marla Chandler. Our apps support the Orton-Gillingham approach for teaching those with dyslexia.

While dyslexics can learn spelling rules and practice them successfully for days in a row, they eventually forget. Research has shown that gamification stimulates executive level functioning, Golden Platypus apps harness this in an aim to increase retention and automaticity in spelling.

I did all the coding (front and back end; Swift and Core Data) and graphics for our apps. “Dunk the Duck,” “Catch the Finch” and “Dodge the Deluge” are in the app store now!
