Sanja

👋 Welcome!

I started my technology adventures before the year 2000 by learning HTML and using Blender. The next step was Linux and over two decades later I am now a Software Engineer after having managed teams and budgets at several well-known companies.

Besides being a mom, I’m also researching for my Engineering doctorate and generally trying to optimize life and help others do the same where possible.

You’ll find all posts I wrote or co-wrote here together with my husband Janos. We code, cycle, and play video games.

You can also find me on GitHub.
