First Post

So I thought it was time to start a blog. I’m learning so much in my day-to-day job that it seems silly not to share it with the world.

Some things about me…

  • I am a self-taught programmer with a degree in English literature. Like many woman in the industry I didn't realise I liked coding until after I had graduated. Sometimes this makes me feel like I've fallen behind my fellow coders and other times I feel like I gained a lot from studying what I did. Perhaps a post for another day?
  • When I'm not coding, you can find me rock climbing, tramping, or reading and writing science fiction.
  • This year I founded a science fiction magazine called Sponge which publishes short fiction from NZ and Pacific writers.
  • I work for a startup called Mish Guru, helping to build their Snapchat management and analytics platform. We work in an open-plan workspace in town and have colleagues all over the world.
  • I have two adorable burmese cats named Vienna and Ash.
  • I am terrible at updating blogs!!

Let’s hope I can fix that last one.

Over and out!
