I have a degree in Clarinet Performance, studied Art History in University and have a Masters degree in Art Market studies and management of related companies, all in Spain.
I moved to London after finishing my master’s degree and have held posts across the art world where I strengthened my knowledge of the commercial aspect of contemporary art with established artists and learned more about the avant-garde and experimental work of younger and emerging artists.
I started exploring tech while working in art. In some of my job positions I had to manage the website of the company and create an e-commerce platform. I felt it was important to learn more about it and following the birth of my daughter in 2017 I spent a year off work taking care of her and I filled my free time with learning to code. I managed to do some readings and complete various online education courses in order to get the basics on HTML, CSS and JS:
Online education courses:
- Understanding the Web
- Manage your code with Git and GitHub
- Learn the command line in Terminal
- Introduction to HTML
- Learn CSS
- Static Site Generators
- Metaprogramming, Ruby 2
Coding became my passion, as art and music. I loved the sense of accomplishment when solving a difficult problem and found programming very close to what I was used to, like a functional art. By the end of 2018 I decided to change career and retrain as a web developer.
I have completed the Online Software Engineering Bootcamp at Flatiron School on December ’19 and nowadays I am attending Udemy Algorithms and Data Structures in Python.
