About Me

Love chocolate and candies, love the gym and outdoor activities, hate when it's time to park the car or wake up in the morning. Always ready for a challenge or a new adventure. Most probably you'll find me glued to a computer screen.

 

About My Session

When You Think there Is no Time for Learning or Coding

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in your career? Do you constantly feel like you don’t have time to work on your projects? Do you want to learn something new, expand your knowledge, develop yourself and be the best you can be?

In this session, I am going to share my story on how I started coding, how I make time to work on side projects and how you can grow and advance in your career. After this talk, I hope you 'll be inspired to work smarter, make new habits and continue pushing yourself even when things fall apart.

I will present some helpful tips about self-motivation, time-management, setting priorities and goals, staying organized, believing in yourself and keeping a balance between your career and personal life. To do so, I'm going to use as an example my personal story of how I got into the tech world, the struggles, the rejections, what I’ve learned and how you can succeed by being consistent and determined. Additionally, in this session, we are going to talk about building the habit of coding and the benefits of it. We are going to explore ways of finding mentors in your job and outside of it and also expanding your social network. 

This talk is not only about getting better at your 9 to 5 job but also about developing yourself.
