My name is Stefi. I am a speciality coffee lover, skier, occasional longboard skater and someone who might spend way too much time watching YouTube videos. In the near future I'd like to finish a triathlon and share things I'm learning on my journey in tech online including on this platform.
I come from Romania, Brasov and currently, I live in Spain, Barcelona. I'm quite introverted and I used think a lot about switching to tech.
Asking myself often "Who Are You?" and "Are You You?" helped me keep going. These questions come from a mini series I've seen on YouTube.
My engineering journey started about two years ago. Although I didn’t pursue a computer science degree, I’ve naturally found my way to it. I’ve participated, hosted and presented at some tech meetups in Barcelona.
For example, I've organized study sessions for the Facebook Developer Circle in Barcelona and in December 2019 I spoke at QueerJS in Paris about The importance of community when transitioning to tech.
In addition to programming, I have over five years of experience in Digital Marketing and Communication roles.
In my spare time I also enjoy reading, spending time with friends, and when restrictions allow, independent and adventurous travel!
Nice to meet you 😊
