Hello, đź‘‹, my name is Sophia Brandt.

Tax officer turned software developer

I volunteer as a Star Mentor and GitHub team member to the Zero to Mastery community where I help and support fledgling programmers.

When I was a stay-at-home mom, I started teaching myself to code - and I never looked back. đź’ś

I enjoy TypeScript, Go, Vim, Docker, learning new programming languages, pen & paper role-playing games, and writing.

I’m interested in conflict resolution and trained as a mediator at Fernuniversität Hagen.


Writing

All my coding-related writing is available on https://www.rockyourcode.com.

You can find selected articles on Dev.to as well.


Talks

I gave a talk at the Softwerkskammer Ruhrgebiet about writing type-safe React applications with Reason. This talk stems from my experiences in learning ReasonML in public.

The repository and slides are available on GitHub.
