About Me

I am Marcia Villalba, a software engineer from Uruguay living in Helsinki. I have been working over 10 years in the IT industry, doing all kind of things related to software development. I am part of the 1% of hispanic women in computer science, a minority in the minorities.

Nowadays I'm work as a Senior Full-stack Developer at Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds.

Coding and sharing with others are my passion. I love learning new things and tinkering with different technologies and frameworks.

I run my own Youtube channel, in which I publish at least one new video every week. In my channel I focus on teaching how to use AWS serverless technologies and managed services.

I belive that everybody can learn to code. I want to make more people to be part of this industry and most of my free time I use it in this cause.

I'm also the Tech Lead in "Girls in Tech" Helsinki where I try to inspire more women to enter into technology and programming.
