About Me

Hello, my name is Tasha Casagni. I graduated from Binghamton University in 2012 with a bachelor’s of science in Bioengineering and a minor in Environmental Studies. My bachelor’s degree focused on the mathematical modeling of non-linear complex systems. Through this program I gained a firm understanding in coding fundamentals by developing genetic algorithms with Mathematica and MatLab. I also gained critical problem solving and debugging skills. After graduating college, I gave back to my community by taking part in a 1 year AmeriCorps contract helping low income families find sustainable and cost effective solutions to making their own house-hold products. This program allowed me to become a confident public speaker as well as become a better innovator.

When I moved to Austin, I got picked up by a digital advertising agency as a paid search data analyst. At my agency, I learned search engine optimization (SEO), pay per click advertising (PPC) and conversion rate optimization (CRO) and managed multiple accounts and clients. I was also the lead analyst involved with creating and managing Google AdWords Scripts. These were JavaScript snippets that programmatically controlled digital advertising campaigns. This work really peaked my interest in JavaScript development and thus began my career transition to becoming a developer.
