I've always been attracted to the aesthetics of technology, especially in films such as Blade Runner, Ex Machina and Ghost in the Shell. I was also able to observe my fiance's journey into a tech career that brought me closer to the tech world; but my true spark came in during a work conference of his in Bellevue WA, Elixir Conf. It was on this conference trip that I felt drawn to the tech environment and the people involved in it. The excitement of their work and what they were learning emanated off of them and onto me. I wanted to learn too! I felt so inspired on the flight back home, I purchased the book Girls Who Code: Learn to Code and Change the World by Reshma Saujani and began my own journey to becoming a Sofware Developer.
