Portugal / Slovakia

I am a software engineer working mainly with python, django and recently with flask. I love programming, I enjoy developing a project from scratch but also I have fun debugging, fixing and refactoring legacy code. Currently my main interest in programming is writing readable and beautiful code, I believe you can't have one without the other.

Breaking stereotypes in tech Talk

English language

Like any other field, the tech world has many stereotypes, gender, ethnic or age stereotypes are fairly easy to spot. In this talk I will show you some of those stereotypes and present my ideas of where they come from. We will see why stereotypes are harmful, not only for the people involved but also for the tech world itself. I will share my personal perspective on how to break those stereotypes and open the way for more people to join our community.
