Lives in Copenhagen, Denmark
This flexibility provided me opportunities to contribute to different open source projects worldwide like Electricity Map in Python, Status Messenger with Blockchain, and Bootstrap, which is one of the most popular front-end open source libraries in the world. From all of these contributions and learnings, I published the Mobile First Bootstrap book by Packt Publishing in December 2013.
I’m not just a strong professional with technical experience and expertise who loves to share my knowledge, I have worked in my open source project, Gitpay, a bounty platform to solve issues from projects with a growing community of contributors around the world. If that weren’t enough, I have my lab experience with the internet of things, programming with Arduino and microcontrollers, and I have my automated indoor garden system. I am an early adopter of agile methodologies, and my life is a scrum board, or how do you think I can manage all of this?
