Current Habits 🎯
Live streaming code while building stuff (like Games and APIs) and solving coding puzzles together:
I'm the organizer of the Code Small Programs meetup, a place dedicated to honing our developer craft by coding together in different formats 🛠
I have a free slot for anyone who's incredibly driven by getting into a web developer job or having more fun as a Junior Ruby developer:
Long Story Long 📖
Since I joined the software world in 2015 I've been exploring how we developers can code, learn, and communicate with more fun. I've always enjoyed creating things, connecting people, and easing people into tech.
Apart from code, I love to chat about Productocracy and progress in basically any area of life.
I've always dreamt of being able to draw and visualize simple things. Thus now, you, my dear reader, as long as you navigate this domain's pages, have to endure this sometimes:
The long-term hope with my drawings is not to become the next Rembrandt, though. It's rather to untap the potential of visual thinking in programming and computer science. Too many abstract concepts are explained too often using words and code only.
When I learned to code I was always craving images and visuals that would explain complex concepts. Especially as a non-native English speaker from a non-technical background, the imagery would have helped me quite a bit.
Somehow, one recent day, I also became a "published Sketchnoter". This means that at least one of my sketchnotes was published on a website by another human being who apparently found joy in their content being summed up visually:
Fun fact: I speak 4 human languages 🇺🇸 🇩🇪 🇷🇺 🇪🇸 , I've worked in 4 completely different fields 🔫💰🃏👩💻, and I lived in 4 countries. In many Asian countries, the word 4 has the same pronunciation as "Death"💀. In Germany the word "vier" (translated as four) is pronounced as fear.
Meanwhile, in my private life...
