Alice fell in love for the cosmopolitan Berlin the first time in 2010. Five years later, coding became self-evident as she attended Le Wagon in Paris, while studying at a French business school. She then worked for a start up as junior backend developer. She enjoys the crazy Berlin lifestyle, curry wurst and teaching her passion to aspiring programmers.

I am a freelance full-stack developer based in Cologne, occasionally working in Berlin. In 2011 I started working with a small team on germanys biggest donation platform betterplace.org. Working at betterplace taught me most of my current understanding of craftmanship and code quality. In 2016 I left betterplace to pursue a freelancer career and have since then been working for different small and big companies, mostly on-site, exclusively with Ruby on Rails and mostly in different problem domains. Currently I am working with the cologne-based startup StormForger on a load-testing tool to make the web a faster place and am the sole developer/technical consultant for Krautreporter, a berlin-based ad-free subscription-based online-magazine.
Panamanian, travel-junkie, blockchain fanatic, and liquid democracy geek. Worked at the Permanent Mission of Panama to the United Nations in Geneva for a year and a half, when I realized most of UN's issues were in reality because of a lack of efficient, transparent, and up-to-date processes. That's when I started researching technological possibilities to solve these, eventually resulting in lots of coding tutorials online, leading me to move to Berlin to join LeWagon. I plan to use this newly-acquired knowledge to enhance government services, promote public participation through technology, and hopefully give a hand at bettering their current archaic (or "traditional" as they call it) structures and processes.
I previously worked in medical research and want to learn how to code in order to combine medicine with informatics. After LeWagon I want to find a job as a developer and learn the necessary skills to fulfil the aforementioned goal one day. Once I'm smart enough... :)

I´ve been working as a art director, designer and project manager for advertising and communication agencies for the last 4 years. The last year I had the opportunity to work in a fully digital team where we designed and produced necessary online support for the agencies campaigns. Working in the creative/design side of projects, I quickly realized that not understanding the programming languages and methods of the people who build the projects was making it hard for me to fully build our teams vision. After Lewagon i plan to stay in Berlin where I wish to expand my freelance practice to offer web development next to my graphic design & branding.
