Hey there! Welcome!
Well, I am an oceanographer that discovered to be passionate about programming (More about this here).
I discovered that programming is something that I like and I can learn with a certain amount of easiness.
While I was working as a developer, I discovered that I could join what I have learned from college and what I have learned as a programmer, and put it all together as a data scientist (which was kind of awesome).
I joined several groups including Pyladies and 2016 national Python conference organizing team (Python Brazil). I love organizing events and teaching beginners that are as passionate as me.
I’m an open-source enthusiast and a living proof of the community’s power and of what it can do for a person. Although I am not originally from computer science, I have a vast experience with data analysis programming scripts (specially with Matlab and Python) and a long experience working with multidisciplinary teams (such as biologists, engineers, managers, field workers, navy commanders, etc).
I am crazy about books and, in particular, the Chronicles of Ice and Fire and all their theories.
I like to write as much as I like to read. So, to help young passionate programmers, I write several blog posts to share things I am learning and my life experiences. Most (if not all) of them you can find here.
In 2017, I started a brazilian podcast focusing on data science called Pizza de Dados or, in english, Data Pizza. It’s been a crazy journey that I never saw coming! But now that’s here, I am so happy to do this.
