- About

Hello, I'm Anna!

This is my about page.

My journey so far

I self-taught myself programming in 2013, mostly because of the modding community in videogames. I started with Lua and batch files, then good old jQuery-based JavaScript and PHP (with HTML and CSS) with some MySQL.
I started my Computer Science Technician degree in 2015 (which I finished in 2017), where I learned C, C# and Java, as well as JSP, Windows Forms and two flavors of SQL (Postgres and SQL Server). During this degree, I also self-taught myself C++, Groovy and Kotlin.
After that, I then started my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science in 2018, where I had a lot of reinforcement in everything I had learned before, as well as a newfound love for System Engineering and DevOps, as well as Compilers and Programming Languages. I never managed to finish this degree, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as getting a job in the industry, where I strove to learn as much as I could, and apply my knowledge to real-world problems.
I worked from Dec 2020 to Jun 2023 in Tokenlab, where I applied as an intern, actually started as a Junior Software Developer, and climbed my way up to a Mid Software Developer. I worked with a lot of different technologies, such as AWS, Docker, AppSync, NestJS, GraphQL, Grails, Spring, Angular and TypeScript, just to name a few. I also developed a lot of soft skills, such as teamwork, communication, and both self-management and leadership. I delivered a lot of value to the company, and I'm very proud of my work there.
During my time there, I got to freelance a bit in the frontend side of things. I self-taught myself React, NextJS and Svelte, the latter of which I'm using to build this website. I developed some public and private websites for clients, and received a lot of praise for my work.
Lastly, the reason I left Tokenlab was to pursue the continuation of my degree and furthering my education. My desire to learn got me into a Computer Science degree Douglas College, in British Columbia, Canada.


Self-taught myself a lot of programming languages and technologies, which I reinforced in my degree and in the industry, where I worked for 3 years. I am now in pursuit of furthering my education, as well as my career.
