Professional coders aren’t necessarily male. Coding isn’t assigned to gender. That is what I see as an undeniable fact, but also as a statement I want to enforce in the real world. That's why I founded Girl Code. I organize meetups, workshops, talks and demos, to inspire women to get into code or stay in code and raise awareness for the gender gap in the developer world. Boys, and of course all other genders, are welcome too!
For my technical accomplishments, my career path and my work to bridge the gender gap in code I won a couple of awards. Also, I am regularly featured in the media, like print, podcasts, online articles and television. You can find more of the background story of the awards on my LinkedIn, and when I am featured in the media I often post it to my Instagram. - Top 100 Meest Invloedrijke Vrouwen / Top 10 Meest Invloedrijke Vrouwen Tech, 2019 - Change in Business Award - Nominee, 2019 - Inspiring Fifty, 2019 - Top 100 Meest Invloedrijke Vrouwen / Top 10 Meest Invloedrijke Vrouwen Tech, 2018 - #2 Tech Talenten Viva400, 2018 - Techionista Tech Talent, 2018
An Android app I've built with Meteor, with little to no coding experience, for Valentine's day 2016. Every time you click the heart-shaped button it generates a reason why "I like you". You can check out the code on Github, 'cause I put it there for future lols.
This is the balloon game I built during a Taste of Code day at Codaisseur, before I learned coding. This game isn't hosted online, but you can find the code of the game and the step by step assignment on my Github.
In 2015 I participated in a two day hackathon at Q42. For this hackathon I pitched Hooli: an IOT connected hula hoop. 'Cause, working out is boring, especially on your own. But what if your phone nudges you when your friends are beating you on their connected hula hoops? Right, you jump up and get hula hooping! Since, this hackathon was a year before I really started coding, I was mainly busy with the hardware: soldering the Arduino board to the accelerator and building the hula hoop itself. During the hackathon I posted our progress on Instagram and Twitter.
This Wordpress blog is a portfolio of all the blogposts I wrote and write professionally. Before I started coding, I wrote blogposts for Masters of Media, Merge Media and Q42. As Girl Code is alive and kicking: I'm still writing for Girl Code.
